Akira Shimazu | Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2017

Akira Shimazu

President & CEO of the Rugby World Cup 2019 Organising Committee

It gives me great pleasure to welcome an event in Japan like the Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific [event to be] held. I expect that people involved in various international sports and other events in this country will strengthen the collaboration through such an opportunity.

As the Organising Committee of the Rugby World Cup 2019, together with our nation-wide 12 host cities and the local governments wishing to become official team camps, we are looking forward to being able to meet and raise relations with many stakeholders as well.
