This program celebrates the seventh year, beginning in 2011. Since then, TUMSAT and KMI have been exploring future directions of the research collaboration between the two institutions, while identifying and sorting research issues on the fisheries industry of Japan and Korea in the context of globalization from the three viewpoints, the resources, the fisheries and the logistics. The commonality and the difference in those issues, which Japanese and Korean fisheries industries are facing, were generally made clear.
At this seminar, we expanded the range of the exchange fields up to the port logistics. It aimed to activate this exchange more widely and deeply in the future. We also agreed to start discussion for realization of joint research on the fields of fisheries and port logistics. It is scheduled to hold the 8th joint seminar in Korea next year.
