Jim Rogers, a prominent American investor, gave a lecture on September 16th at a hotel in Fukuoka City titled ``East Asia and Japan's Economic Outlook and Kyushu's Direction.''
Regarding the Japan-Korea tunnel project, he said, ``If the 38th parallel disappears, freedom of movement will occur on the Korean peninsula.At that time, the Japan-Korea tunnel will become extremely important. It's because we're connected.''
In addition, in an interview with Sekai Ilbo, he emphasized, ``The tunnel connects Japan and Korea economically and humanly. This is a wonderful thing.''
When the Japan-Korea Tunnel was completed, he said, ``I want to take my child on a road trip from Tokyo through the tunnel to London.''
