 Message from the Chairman of the Board

 I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for your continued support for the activities of our association.

 I have been elected by the Board of Directors at its 33rd meeting to the position of Chairman of the board. And I will take over the duties of the previous presidents to further develop the association and the radio industry.

 The pandemic of COVID-19 has had a serious impact on society, and the re-establishment of a system to cope with the new normal is required worldwide.

 Based on this situation, the 6th Science, Technology, and Innovation Basic Plan has been formulated to realize the Society 5.0 that Japan is aiming for, which includes the implementation of 5G and the promotion of research and development for Beyond 5G. Radio waves are expected as an important infrastructure to support the Society 5.0.

 Under these social and economic conditions, the association will steadily promote the broad use of radio waves throughout society and engage in activities that contribute to the development of industry.

 In the area of 5G, we will conduct local 5G development demonstrations and promotional activities. And in the Beyond 5G, we will work on its R&D and standardization in cooperation with other related organizations.

 In the area of ITS, we will actively contribute to the ITU-R's research agenda on radio communication performance requirements, etc., toward the development of ITS radio technology that is essential for autonomous driving.

 In the field of broadcasting, we will propose our technologies to Brazil for further collaboration, and promote research and development for the advancement of terrestrial television broadcasting.

 In addition to the above, we will also do some projects such as consultation services for inquiries, dynamic spectrum sharing services, holding lectures, publishing journals, collaborating with related standardization organizations, fostering international standardization personnel, and supporting the invitation of international conferences.

 Together with our members, we will continue to make earnest efforts for the development of the radio industry, and we would appreciate your further support and cooperation.

 Thank you.
