Here is the address delivered by the congress president of ICP2016, Kazuo Shigemasu, at the handover ceremony in Cape Town:
ICP2012 is a great success, and our time in Cape Town has been very productive and enjoyable, and for this success, I congratulate President of the Organizing committee, Sath Cooper, and his colleagues.
Now the handover from Cape Town to Yokohama has been completed, and we assume responsibility for the International Congress of Psychology in 2016.
During the next four years we expect significant advancements in psychology, and I hope that everyone here will come to Yokohama to share these developments.
I look forward to seeing all of you again four years from now in Yokohama.
President, ICP2016 Organizing Committee
