My presentation today is about Japan’s policy toward Central Asia and the South Caucasus. I will talk about, first, what we have done so far to assist economic reform and nation-building efforts of the countries of the region; and secondly, talk about new direction of our policy toward Central Asia, referring to our Foreign Minister’s recent visit to the region; and finally, briefly touch upon our policy orientation toward the South Caucasus.
