日本人桜に無関心な人はいるまい。開花宣言だ、2分咲きだと情報が飛び交う。

Hi. Does the で after 日本人 mean として (as)?
If not, is the で equivalent to に?
Thank you.

    It is like であって. You might want to approximate it with the logical operator AND:
    There is no one (no person exists) such that they are a Japanese and are indifferent to cherry blossoms.
