August 2, 2017: Mr. Ahmad Bashir Ghafoori, First Secretary of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, had the honor and pleasure of attending Okayama Prefecture’s promotional fair titled as “Okayama, the Land of Sunshine Seminar” co-hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan and Okayama Prefectural Government at the Iikura House. The seminar displayed the beautiful nature, rich cuisine, historic sites, and the rich history in Okayama. This event provided the attending diplomats, the government officials, and other attending guests to develop a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the richness and variety of Japanese history and culture through Okayama.

Key to the mission of this event, with the presence of H.E. Mr. Fumio Kishida, Foreign Minister, is to foster a depth of understanding about the region among foreign diplomats. As such, the interactions at this tremendous event did much to enhance and grow the bond between Japanese local governments, communities, and the diplomatic corps.

At the seminar, many diplomats were present, and Mr. Ghafoori had a pleasure of meeting with some of the distinguished guests and discussed many topics of the mutual interest.
