We sincerely hope that this fair contributes to the further deepening of the friendship and mutual understanding between our two nations."

Last year, the response was terrific and this year we hope to present to the Indian students a wider range of subjects encouraging more students to visit the fair."
The event will introduce English-based degree programmes at the Japanese universities for the students in India.
