Before I begin my speech, I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the victims of the torrential rains last month and express my deepest sympathies to those who are suffering. Some areas, especially in the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture, continue to be severely affected and there is still much to be worried about.

I am very honored to have the opportunity to exchange views with administrative, financial, and business leaders in Kyoto Prefecture today. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for your cooperation with the activities of the Bank of Japan’s Kyoto Branch.
