Executive Comment
Vice President Takaji KURODA, JUSTSAP Japan

"Even if we succeeded once and/or twice, we had better not say arrogantly that we "learned the technology" or gestablished the technologyh. The budget should be increased to "succeed in it once again" if succeeded. The budget should also be increased to "launch it more" if failed. I expect the time that the space development of our country become genuine would come, by applying such an extremely natural law learned through experience to the space development."
