UA will host a delegation from Japan who will present two sessions on March 3 from 12:30-4. The first session (12:30-2:50) includes a free lunch, and the second session will continue from 3-4 pm. Topics that the delegation will discuss include the Japanese economy, the 70th anniversary of World War II, prospects for the Tokyo Olympics, Japan’s energy strategy since the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, Japanese trading companies and investment, university life in Japan, and rediscovering the value of Japan through women, technology and culture. The sessions will take place in the Bevill Building Room 1000.
If you can attend, please RSVP as soon as possible at http://bama.ua.edu/~karizumi/WUTJ2015/. (The deadline was yesterday, but official announcements just arrived. Hopefully, attendance is still permissible.)
