On 11 May 2022, the MICA Center welcomed a delegation from the Japanese Embassy in France. Mr ABE, Minister, Deputy Head of Mission and Director of the Economic Department, accompanied by Mr Kambayashi, First Secretary for Agricultural Affairs and Colonel Matsuzaki, Defence Attaché of the Japanese Embassy in France.
During the presentation of the MICA Center, the delegation was particularly interested to learn about the concept of voluntary naval cooperation whereby the French Navy exchanges reliable security information with partner companies in the maritime industry in confidence. This visit could be a precursor to partnerships with Japanese shipping companies.
The visit of the facilities then allowed the members of the delegation to see the work carried out by our teams.
