Visits of Parliamentary Delegations and State Minister to Finland

From the end of July to early weeks of August, five delegations of Japan’s parliamentary members visited Finland, and had the exchange of views and site visits in connection with a variety of agenda: border issues, parliamentary management, intelligence supervision, consumer affairs, offenders rehabilitation respectively and so forth.  During the same period, there was another visit of Mr. Mizuochi, State Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science & Technology, to have the exchange of views and site visits.

All these visits have created a precious opportunity in further enhancing the parliamentary and human exchanges.  It is expected that, based upon such opportunity, mutual understanding between Japan and Finland be further materialized.
