Three delegations from Shimane Prefecture, Japan including the Deputy Head of the Department of Environment and Living, Imaoka Yasuharu, and Director of Culture and International Affairs, Hitomi Nagira, visited the Secretariat and discussed a work-cooperation plan between Shimane Prefecture and the NEAR Secretariat, meeting with Secretary General Kim Ok-chae on Tuesday, January 14.


Deputy Head Imaoka gave a detailed explanation on how a Shimane Prefecture official scheduled to be dispatched to the Secretariat in April will perform NEAR Secretariat duties in Shimane Prefectural Office for internal reasons. However, he promised that there would be no disruptions because of this, and Secretary General Kim Ok-chae accepted this.  



Secretary General Kim emphasized the importance of the role of Japanese regional governments members for the success of the NEAR General Assembly which will be held in Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Russia in the fall and for the strengthening of the Association. He also asked that Shimane Prefecture, as a founding member of the Association, would encourage Japanese local governments to participate in NEAR international exchange events actively.
