H.E. Yukio Hatoyama, Former Prime Minister of Japan attended the Forum the third time and made his keynote speech as “Global Senior Consultant for Precision Medicine & Medical Care and Aging International Forum”. H.E. Yukio Hatoyama has adhered to the “Fraternity” spirit for many years and he proposed in this Forum “I hope to expand the community concept to One Belt and One Road health community and get people’s support. He also said “I think building such a new conception is a meaningful thing. For me, “Fraternity” actually carries two concepts which are benevolence and technique.
