TUFS Student Participates in Japan-China Undergraduate Student Panel Discussion

published July 11, 2017

On Saturday 17th June, eight Japanese and Chinese university students participated in the third Japan-China Undergraduate Student Panel Discussion at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies. The topic of the discussion was 'Japan-China Relations under the Trump Administration: From the Perspectives of Youth.' TUFS student, Tensei Tei (School of International and Area Studies, East Asian Studies, fourth year) participated in the panel discussion, and was featured in the Chunichi Shimbun newspaper (Aichi Prefecture Edition) on June 19th.

Tei's Impression of Events

I was very happy to be able to participate in the third Japan-China Undergraduate Student Panel Discussion as a representative of TUFS. During the panel discussion, each participant was able to express their impressions concerning the other country, and opinions on generally unapproachable topics, such as historical perception problems and territorial disputes, were discussed openly, making the discussion very worthwhile. In regards to the overall topic of the day, and how Japan-China relations will change under the Trump Administration, opinions seemed to differ between participants, but all could agree on the importance of further development of mutual exchange and understanding from an economic and cultural point of view. I am very grateful for the support of the professors at both TUFS and Nagoya University of Foreign Studies, the Governor of Aichi Prefecture, and the Consulate-General of The People's Republic of China in Nagoya, and hope that this year's panel discussion has contributed to the improvement of Japan-China relations.
