Along with the opening of our new branch office in Kasuga City in early June, our office’s local activities in the city became active. As one of such activities, my supporters’ small-scale gathering was held today. Although the theme was “Let’s make Kasuga a city rich in culture”, the discussion naturally covered many issues which we are now facing, including the measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infections and measures to restore the economic damages, the digitalization of both the public and private sectors’ operational systems, the Japanese government’s protest against the Chinese coast guard and other vessels’ frequent entry into the contiguous zone and invasion into the territorial waters surrounding Japan’s Senkaku Islands, and China’s oppression of the Uyghur people and other Muslim ethnic minority groups in China.
Kasuga City has the greatest number of population entitled to vote in my electoral district, the Fukuoka Fifth District. It is no easy task for those who plan and manage such gatherings, and I am always grateful to them.
