On this Monday, we will be joined by the new Japanese Ambassador to the Netherlands, His Excellency Mr Hidehisa Horinouchi.
During the lecture, the Ambassador will focus on Chinese-Japanese relations.
The bilateral relation between China and Japan is of crucial importance for the countries involved, East Asia and the world at large. Mr Horinouchi will discuss the relations between Japan and China in a historical perspective, point to the current state of affairs, friendship between the two countries and discuss prospects for the future.

Since September 15, 2019 he now holds the position of Ambassador to the Netherlands.
