Good morning, G20 finance and central bank deputies, professors, and distinguished guests. Welcome to Tokyo. This year, Japan assumes the G20 presidency for the first time. Today's symposium is one of the kick-off events under Japan's presidency. On behalf of the co-organizers, the Bank of Japan and the Japanese Ministry of Finance, I would like to express our sincere gratitude for your participation in this symposium.

As one of the medium-to long-term policy issues that will be discussed under Japan's G20 presidency, we chose "aging and its policy implications."
