New Challenges for Peace and Security in East Asia: Perspectives on Japan’s Future

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Abe, the Japanese government is proactively working to solve the major challenges Japan faces. Consul-General Kato discusses these challenges and outlines Japan’s path forward to prosperity.

Consul-General Motohiko Kato arrived to Consulate-General of Japan in Nashville in October 2012 by way of Manila, where he most recently served as Deputy Chief of Mission of the Japanese Embassy in the Philippines. A career diplomat, he entered the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in 1982 after passing Japan’s foreign-service examination. Consul-General Kato’s primary mission is to care for Japanese citizens in their families residing in the Southeast, protect the interests of Japanese companies, and promote Japanese culture and business throughout these five states.
