Japan's Diplomat, Terusuke Terada to Hold Public Lecture in UT
The lecture titled "Japan'd Place in Asia" will be held on 18th of April at 4pm in Senat Hall. Welcome!
The Asia and Oceania region is becoming increasingly interconnected with Japan in every sphere of activities. This lecture aims at offering a clear-cut idea of Japan’s place in this emerging and dynamic Asia. The lecture, therefore, will focus on Japan’s rapidly developing interconnection with Asia in diplomatic, political and economic relations as well as cultural relationship and finally touch upon the challenges confronting Japan in nuclear, economic and diplomatic as well as geopolitical areas.
Lecturer Terusuke TERADA is currently President of the Foreign Press Center/Japan. He was ambassador to Mexico (1995-1998), Ambassador at large in charge of North Korea. His last assignment was Ambassador to South Korea (2000-2003). At the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he held such posts as Director General for Latin American and Caribbean Affairs and Director General for Public Information. He was a council member of the United Nations University (UNU), together with UT Professor Marju Lauristin.
