ZAGREB, January 24, 2018 – EU-Japan Fest Secretary General Shuji Kogi on Wednesday held talks with Rijeka Mayor Vojko Obersnel and members of a team in charge of the European Capital of Culture Rijeka 2020 project, because the Japanese are interested in increasing cultural and tourist exchange with Europe through this project.

Rijeka officials briefed Kogi about the project and proposed cooperation with Japanese artists, according to a press release issued by the Rijeka city authorities.

The meeting of Rijeka is the continuation of cooperation between Rijeka city authorities and the EU-Japan Fest which started two years ago.

The EU Japan Fest is the cultural exchange between the European Union and Japan.

Since 1992, the Japanese organisation has worked to create such exchanges between the year’s Cultural Capital of Europe and Japan. The “Fest” aims to support both traditional and innovative culture.
