Greetings for the New Year 2018

Greetings for the New Year
Happy New Year.
I would like to start off by wishing you all a wonderful new year.
Half a year has already passed since I assumed my post as chairperson of the Japan Intellectual Property Association (JIPA). The economic climate has been undergoing constant change during this time, while the rapid development of AI and IoT technologies surrounding IP is on the verge of bringing about a major transformation. As we enter the new year, I feel a tremendous amount of responsibility as the chairperson of this association which leads the country in IP activities.
