Carleton International Relations Society student visit to the Embassy

On November 5, 27 Carleton University students from the Carleton International Relations Society (CIRS) visited the Embassy of Japan to learn more about Japanese diplomacy.

Minister Akira Imamura, deputy head of mission, gave the students a presentation about Japanese diplomacy and Japan-Canada relations. Some of the topics discussed during the presentation included Japan’s National Security Strategy, the current state of Japan-Canada relations, future perspectives on strengthening Japan-Canada relations and Japan’s vision of a “Free and Open Indo-Pacific”.

Following the presentation, students had the opportunity to ask questions to Minister Imamura. Their questions touched on a broad range of topics including relations between Japan and Asian countries, security issues, people-to-people exchanges between Japan and Canada and the Embassy’s work.
