Representatives from Srinakharinwirot University in Thailand paid a courtesy visit to Vice President Fusanori Miura.

On Monday, May 13, Assistant Professor Dr. Noppado Inchan, Dean of the College of Social Communication Innovation at Srinakharinwirot University, with whom we have an international academic exchange agreement, and another nine personnel, made a courtesy visit to Vice President Fusanori Miura (who is in charge of international cooperation).
Srinakharinwirot University is a National University with a long and distinguished history—which the Princess Sirindhorns studied at—was established as a training school for teachers in institutions of higher education in 1949. The University name is derived from the name Sinagarindra Boromarajajonani, the Princess Mother of Thailand, who was the mother of Rama IX (the former king Bhumibol Adulyadej). Furthermore, the University is located in the metropolitan area, in which the public transport is convenient and is safe—where many Japanese reside. Since we made the agreement with Srinakharinwirot University in November of 2001, active research and student exchanges have been taking place.
The courtesy visit began with the introduction of each University by Dr. Noppado Inchan, Dean of the faculty, and Vice President Miura. After that, there was a suggestion made from Srinakharinwirot University for promoting a student exchange between the Faculty of Business Administration for Society of the same University and the Faculty of Global and Science Studies of Yamaguchi University. An active exchange of opinions was held between the person in charge from both sides on concrete matters, etc.
It is expected that the exchange between both universities, and with Thailand—which is a priority country—will become more active with this visit.
