At the president’s office, Vice President YAMADA Hitoshi, Deputy Executive Director for International Affairs Professor ARAKI Ichiro, Faculty of Engineering Professor WATANABE Masayoshi, and International Office Manager Ms. ITO Yoko also attended the meeting to greet him. After Professor Watanabe made a couple of presentations on introduction to YNU and to Green Material Innovation (GMI) research bases and they had a talking session. Since YNU and Queen’s had just signed an academic exchange agreement a week before, discussions on the future academic exchange between the two universities went on in a very friendly atmosphere.
