安倍総理に「地球市民賞」

安倍総理を「極右の政治家」だの「独裁者」などと非難してきた反安倍派の皆さんは、「地球市民賞」を受賞した総理を、
今後どう揶揄するんでしょうね・・・。

安倍晋三首相は19日、米国の有力シンクタンク、大西洋評議会から国際的に優れた功績を残したと
して、「地球市民賞」を授与された。ニューヨーク市内で行われた授与式で、首相は「私がこの賞を
受賞するのは日本人を代表してのものだ」と述べた。イタリアのレンツィ首相らも同時に受賞した。
同賞は、過去にミャンマーのアウン・サン・スー・チー国家顧問相兼外相や緒方貞子元国際協力機構
(JICA)理事長、キッシンジャー元米国務長官らが受賞している。

※大西洋協議会は対中国研究が主流のシンクタンク

世界経済フォーラム会長のクラウス・シュワブ教授が、安倍総理に「地球市民賞」が授与される理由について述べた中で、
9月4~5日、中国の浙江省杭州市で開催された第11回20カ国・地域(G20)サミットに参加した安倍総理が宿泊先の
ホテルに残したメモについて触れているくだりがあります。日本では全く報じられませんでしたが、安倍総理がホテルの
部屋に残した一枚のメモが「微博」で公開され、中国のネット上でも話題になっているのだそうです。
総理の人柄が伝わってくるエピソードです。

G20 安倍首相がホテル清掃員に残したメモが話題=中国ネット
杭州G20サミット終了後、安倍晋三首相の宿泊したホテルの部屋を片づけた清掃係は、1枚のメモ書きを見つけた。
そのメモを撮影した画像が中国のネットに出回り、話題となっている。ユーザからは「日本人の礼儀に感動」「修
養のある民族」などの声が上がった。

杭州のホテルに残した安倍首相のメッセージ

G20期間中に宿泊した杭州のホテルに残した、安倍首相直筆のものとみられるメッセージ(徐静波さんの微博から)


メモには、「感謝」の大きな文字、その左には「平成廿八年九月五日 内閣総理大臣 安倍晋三」と記されていた。
G20終了後、ミニブログ微博で20万人のフォロワーを持つアジア通信社長の徐静波さんが微博で公開した。
知人から送付されたものだという。
徐さんによると、このメモは、日本代表団とインド代表団が宿泊した高級ホテルのシェラトン杭州湿地公園リゾート
で清掃員として働く中年女性が、安倍首相が宿泊した部屋で見つけたもの。徐静波さんは安倍首相の筆跡であること
を示すため、過去に首相が書いた色紙の言葉を映した画像を並べ、「私は本物だと思う」との説明をつけた。

■ホテル側「仕事認められ嬉しい」ネットユーザは皮肉を言うものの礼儀に敬服
シェラトンホテル側によると、ホテル側に向けられたとみられる首相からのメッセージは、6日に清掃係が発見した。
清掃員は、すぐさま支配人に届けたという。「仕事が認められて、嬉しく思っています」とホテルはメディアの取材
に回答している。
ネットユーザは、「字がきれい」「細かすぎる」など皮肉や冗談で日本に対する闘争心を見せるものの、礼儀正しさ
には敬服している様子。「日本人は真面目な民族。小さなお菓子でも見られるように精巧で緻密」「(中国人とは)
素質が違う、認めないといけない」。
一方、日本の伝統文化が中国から伝来したものであるにも関わらず、今日の中国には道義や礼儀が失われていること
に失望するコメントもある。「礼儀の民族とは、いったい誰のことだったのだろう」。

2016 Global Citizen Awards honored

2016 Global Citizen Transcriptより抜粋

Atlantic Council
2016 Global Citizen Awards


Awardees:
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi

Location: New York City, New York
Date: Monday, September 19, 2016



ANNOUNCER:
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the inaugural recipient of the Global Citizen Award, World Economic Forum
Founder and Executive Chairman Professor Klaus Schwab. (Applause.)

KLAUS SCHWAB:
First, let me tell you how honored I am to be back on this stage, and particularly how honored I am to introduce such
a
 distinguished global personality to be the recipient of the Atlantic Council Global Citizen Award this year.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has shown extraordinary achievement since he reassumed the prime ministership. First,
the primeminister succeeded in achieving what he calls stability in politics. Your liberal democratic party, the LDP of
Japan, is dominating the Diet and the upper house, occupying more than two-thirds of the seats.
So your political power is significant.
Some of my friends in Japan tell me, knowing that the first lady, Madam Akie Abe, has her own common powers, that
the only
 opposition you still face, Prime Minister, is inside your family. (Laughter.)
Second, Prime Minister, you succeeded to restore confidence in the Japanese economy. And I quote from your address
to
 participants in Davos this year, “The Japanese people have now unmistakably found the light of hope at the end of the
long, dark
 tunnel they have found themselves in for no less than two decades.
They are poised to regain great confidence in themselves.”
 But in introducing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, I think it’s
appropriate to show you what an outstanding personality in today’s
 political landscape he is. And here, I just want to
mention three features.
First, in your career, you showed very early the principle to be a fighting politician, taking the right path for the country
no matter
 how harsh the criticism may be. Today, you are one of the few leaders in the world well known, not just for
your name, but most
 importantly for your policies and what you really stand for. In a world where trust in leaders is
declining, so much declining, we all
 hope to see more leaders like you who fight for what needs to be done for the
country’s future and for our global peace and
 prosperity, rather than those full of promises to respond to the popular
trends of the day.
Prime Minister, in a world where political leaders are more and more guided by a radar system sending out signals and
so
 constantly changing course depending on the response received, you, Prime Minister Abe, are a compass man who
follows an
 inner compass providing directions based on strong values and on a clear mission.
But second, over the years you have demonstrated true global citizenship. You have consistently shown great respect
towards the
 views and values of leaders from other nation states. And most importantly, you have always embraced the
spirit and practice of
 open dialogue, regardless of how difficult the topic. In this respect, you have defined your principle
of global governance as a
 mutually beneficial relationship based on common strategic interests.
This approach of finding solutions to our global problems is the only way to maintain peace and stability in a world which
has
 become multi-polar, characterized by the need to respect different cultures, values and political concepts.
But third, and maybe most importantly, you have become and are still a very modest, thoughtful and human person.
Just think of 
 a small thing, a certainly unexpected, personal, handwritten thank you note that you left in your room for
the hotel staff during the G-20 summit in Hangzhou, China
. We all know and we have heard you will host the Summer
Olympic and Paralympic Games in
 Tokyo in 2020.
And as it has been mentioned before, you dressed up as Super Mario who, as you all know, is an unstoppable force and
famously someone who can turn his hand to addressing great challenges. So we all hope in this room, Prime Minister
Abe, that you will continue to address the great challenges of our times.
And I warmly, on behalf of everybody, present to you the Atlantic Council Global Citizen Award, so well deserved.
Thank you.
 (Applause.)

JAPANESE PRIME MINISTER SHINZO ABE:
Thank you. Thank you so much. I am humbled to receive your Global Citizen Award.
Am I a global citizen? I don’t know. But I know I am a globetrotter. (Laughter.)
Since January 2013, I have gone a distance longer than roundtrip between the Earth and the moon and met dozens of
leaders.And yes, I did go to Rio de Janeiro last month to cosplay Mario.(Laughter.) (Applause.)
I know, I know that I must be humbled because it is the Japanese people who deserve this award. Ladies and gentlemen,
this year marks the 60th anniversary since Japan joined the U.N. in 1956. (Applause.)
Thank you. Over the last 60 years, young aid workers from Japan have eaten the same food and drunk the same water
as the local people do in developing countries. Still others have dedicated their lives in eradicating leprosy, polio and so
forth.
These are the Japanese who deserve the medal. And so, ladies and gentlemen, I receive your award on their behalf.
Thank you. (Applause.)
There was a time long ago when the word “Asia” was a synonym for eternal stagnation. Karl Marx championed such an
idea.Today, Asia is the biggest consumer market, and it is in broader Asia more people live under democracy than in any
other region.And guess who have been instrumental in bringing about this tremendous growth? Yes, certainly the Asian
people themselves, but also the U.S. which has provided both its vast market and its steady security assurance to Asia.
(Applause.)  And may I say that my country, Japan, too, did its best possible effort.
The point is that the U.S. is always a residential power in the Asia Pacific region. You cannot leave from, but can only
invest more
 into the region. And please do not forget that you’ll not find a better, stronger and more reliable partner than
Japan in pursuit of
 your continued involvement in the region. (Applause.)
That leads me to conclude by paying tribute to the launch of the Asia Pacific Center under the roof of the Atlantic Council.
Japanese are ready to cooperate with the council for its successful and bright future.
The time is right for you to make your own pivot to the Asia Pacific. I hope that the award you gave me is emblematic for
the great
 journey you have just embarked upon.  Thank you so much.   (Applause.)
