NHK Reporter: The people gathered here [at the Science and Technology Forum] are discussing a range of issues, but they’re focusing on how to create energy responsibly while protecting the environment. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe gave the opening address. He called on the world’s scientific communities to help solve the problems facing Fukushima Prefecture and the disabled nuclear plant.
Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan: We have learned, in the most painful way, the importance of STS, or science and technology in society, by which I mean Fukushima and its aftermath. We’re wide open to receive the most advanced knowledge from overseas to contain the problem. My country needs your knowledge.
