Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia to Japan Aleksandra Kovač attended the annual reception of the Japan-Serbia Association, with the participation of about 60 members, led by the Board of Directors.
On this occasion, the director of the Department of Culture and Sports of the city of Fujimi, Makoto Suzuki, held a special presentation on the ties between Serbia and Japan, the history of the sister cities of Fujimi and Sabac and the activities of promoting Serbia before the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
In her speech, Ambassador Kovač thanked the Society and paid tribute to its members for their important role and commitment to deepening bilateral relations between Serbia and Japan in numerous areas. She assessed that the friendship between our two countries, which this year marks an impressive 140 years, was imbued with various historical challenges, but that, despite that and with the support of the Society, decades of cultural, educational and business exchanges have built mutual understanding. She added that today Serbia and Japan share lasting and deep ties, based primarily on the spirit of solidarity, which was especially evident in very difficult moments for our two peoples, such as war suffering and natural disasters. She pointed out that our partnership offers great potential, as evidenced by the increase in Japanese investments in Serbia.
