After more than half a century since its inception, the Japan-U.S. alliance has demonstrated one of the most successful alliances in the world, and our bilateral economic ties have been deepening year after year. Japan and the U.S. form vital pillars of maintaining peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region, and our alliance shall continue to play a vital role in this increasingly important region and beyond.

The environment and climate change are one of the main themes of this year's G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit. With the present and forthcoming U.S. administrations in mind, we ask ourselves "Are the world's two largest economies prepared to face the new international economic and strategic reality, and therefore assume responsibility for the emerging global challenges such as climate change and energy security?

Mr. Shikata is currently Director, North America Division, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and is responsible for economic issues in the U.S.-Japan alliance. In particular, Mr. Shikata is involved in U.S.-Japan summit meetings, and the upcoming G8 Summit in Hokkaido. Prior to his current capacity, Mr. Shikata served at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as Assistant Press Secretary in 2007, and as Director of the Status of U.S. Forces Agreement Division in 2006. Mr. Shikata received his law degree from Kyoto University, and received a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard University.
