The purpose of the visit was to see the progress of the Japan Centre at Stamford University. The Japan Centre will be established in association with the Stamford University Bangladesh.
"We have been working closely with Stamford University for the last couple of years, especially since the first Japan-Bangladesh joint international conference held in last December. The function of the centre will be multidimensional," said Prof. Takashi.
According to him the Japan Centre will be a focal point for Japanese collaboration in education, research and business. It will be a meeting place for Japanese entrepreneurs, educationists and researchers; it will also be a display centre of Japanese goods, along with history and culture and it will also organize seminars.
It is hoped that the Japanese language school of the centre will start functioning from April 2007. The centre will be an independent institution where many organizations will be able to interact with each other.
