In his opening words, President Hasebe noted that “One of the features of the YNU Alumni Meeting is the fact that not only the international students from the host country, but also many Japanese YNU alumni working in that country attend the meeting. Additionally, with guests from related institutions and partner universities of the country attending, this creates a strong network between the parties which would not have a chance to meet otherwise. With this network, each party should surely expand their field of activities.”

YNU also welcomed many guests to this alumni reunion meeting,
