Aichi Friendship Exchange Business

2005Held inAichi ExpoThen, the municipalities in Aichi Prefecture (excluding Nagoya City) welcomed 120 officially participating Expo countries as friendship partner countries for the "One Municipal One Country Friendship Project". After the Expo, exchanges and various internationalization projects were actively carried out, leading to mutual understanding and regional internationalization that went a step further from the hospitality at the Expo. We are promoting further internationalization with one of the driving forces being the interest of the citizens of the prefecture, which has increased through the “One Municipality, One Country Friendship Project”, in international exchange and understanding of different cultures.[55].
