This annual symposium, organized by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, has been held alternately in Spain and Japan, aiming to strengthen the bilateral relationship and improve mutual understanding. Experts from all walks of life are invited to the symposium to talk about timely topics.
At the symposium, two sessions were held. This year, those topics were chosen: “Urban Planning and ‘Smart City’” and “Prospects for the Bilateral Relationship Based on the 400 years of Diplomatic Relations Between Spain and Japan”. Politicians, business people and academic researchers from both countries were invited to the sessions to talk about those topics.
