Last Update : 2018-12-11 14:37

On November 26, 2018, International Symposium was held at Umitaka-Maru in Benoa Port Bali, Indonesia.

The symposium was held in order to promote collaboration in research and educational exchange in Marine Science and Technology between TUMSAT and its partner institutions in Indonesia and other countries in Southeast Asia, taking the occasion of the call of TUMSAT's training ship "Umitaka-Maru" at Benoa Port, Bali, Indonesia.

The researchers from TUMSAT's partner institutions and TUMSAT graduates attended the symposium. The total number of participants was 46. Following the opening speech by President Dr. Toshio Takeuchi, each institution gave a presentation and the participants enjoyed interaction and discussions.

After the symposium, short tour of the Umitaka-Maru and a welcome reception were held. Consul-General at Denpasar, Mr. Hirohisa Chiba, participated in the reception, and Dr. Hideo Tabata, President of Rakusuikai, TUMSAT Alumni Association, gave a toast. Cadets of Umitaka-Maru also joined the reception and the participants enjoyed the cadets' song performance as well as singing Indonesian songs all together.

We expect that this symposium would become a good opportunity for further development of cooperation and relationship in the fields of education and researches with related institutions.

The symposium was held as one of the events under "The 60th Anniversary of Japan-Indonesia Diplomatic Relations."
