Studio Ghibli (History)
This is a transcription of the speech delivered by Toshio Suzuki during the special programme for Studio GHIBLI at Annecy International Animated Film Festival in the summer of 1995.

Executive Managing Director
Ladies and gentlemen,
I wonder if you know, but the Japanese are shy. So when it comes to introducing themselves or explaining what they have accomplished, the Japanese find it rather difficult. I am, of course, one of such people. As I am not proficient in the English language, my Japanese manuscript has been translated into English to bring out this message to you, and I am very pleased to have this opportunity to talk to you about "the Ten Years of Studio GHIBLI." I am Toshio Suzuki, a producer of the Studio, and a close friend of both Miyazaki and Takahata for more than 17 years.
