On October 31, 2017, Supreme Master Ching Hai praised Japan’s people and culture as she wrote to congratulate His Excellency Shinzo Abe on his re-election as prime minister.
A greatly experienced government leader, Prime Minister Abe is recognized for “Abenomics,” referring to the comprehensive program to revive Japan’s economy. Reports say that the plan achieved remarkable progress including a record low unemployment rate and a record high in the value of goods and services produced by Japan at current market prices. His Excellency also made efforts to include more women in the workforce, which resulted in increased employment levels for women and greater possibilities for promotions.
Furthermore, during a celebration of China’s National Day in September 2017, which included the commemoration of the 45th anniversary of the normalization of Japan-China ties, Prime Minister Abe made a surprise appearance at the ceremony held at the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo, Japan. It was the first time in 15 years that a Japanese prime minister had attended this annual event.
Above is Supreme Master Ching Hai’s letter to His Excellency.
