    I am delighted to return to Japan. I have the happiest memories of my last visit five years ago. Although Japan and New Zealand lie far apart, they have much in common, as Pacific nations, and island countries with largely complementary economics that live by their oversea trade. Our two countries are fortunate in having advanced standard of living. Japan's is based primarily on industry and New Zealand's on agriculture. Japan and New Zealand are both democracies. In the International sphere we are both committed to uphold the principles and ideals of the United Nations. I hope during my visit to renew old friendship and make new ones. I am looking forward to seeing more of Japan's outstanding achievements and I hope my visit will help to strengthen the friendship between our two countries. It is my earnest hope that the close cooperation between us will pay its part, in however small a way, in the promotion of wider international understanding and goodwill. I thank you.
