The Embassy of the Republic of Fiji in Tokyo was once again invited by the President of the Japan Overseas Cooperative Association (JOCA) to attend their 2013 New Year party which was held at the National Olympic Memorial Youth Centre on Saturday, 26 January 2013. Representatives from the Government of Japan, Diplomatic Missions in Tokyo, former JICA volunteers and other private/government organizations attended the event.
Delivering the Keynote Address was Ms Kuniko INOGUCHI, the Member of Councillors, National Diet of Japan Representing Chiba Prefecture. The program was very exciting especially when members of the Diplomatic Corp in Japan were able to meet and share stories with former JICA volunteers who had served in their respective countries. Representing the Fiji Embassy were First Secretary Jovesa Vocea and Second Secretary Kelera Wright. About 300 guests attended the event.
