Australia-Japan Society of NSW
Help celebrate our university awardees and hear from the Consul-General about the impact of the recent disaster on Australia-Japan relations!
AJS-NSW offers three awards to outstanding students of Japanese at the University of Sydney, UNSW and Macquarie University.
Our awards ceremony will be held in conjunction with a presentation by Dr. Kohara, Consul-General of Japan in Sydney, on "Japan and Japan-Australia relations after the East Japan Earthquake Disaster".
Dr. Kohara is a Patron of AJS-NSW (along with the Premier of NSW) and this is the first time for him to speak to us since his appointment.
The presentation and Dr. Kohara's speech will be followed by cocktails and networking.
We look forward to welcoming members and friends and especially our awardees and their lecturers.
