In my first policy speech, I intend to convey the big picture of policies that we will tackle as a "Cabinet that works for the People," and my resolve towards managing the administration. In addition, in this Diet session, we will submit the relevant bills on vaccinations in relation to the novel coronavirus, and ones on assistance to those affected by natural disasters. We intend to thoroughly explain these matters in the Diet session so as to pass those bills swiftly. Thank you.
