The annual Bai Xian Asia Institute (Japan) Inc. (BXAIJ) New Year’s party was held on Jan 16 in Gakushi-Kaikan, Tokyo.  More than 100 guests including Bai Xian Scholars & Alumni, Board Governors of BXAIJ, and representatives from our 6 Japanese Anchor and Participating Universities joined the gathering to celebrate the new year and share about their AFLSP experience.

Mr. Yoshihiro WATANABE, President of BXAIJ, gave a warm welcome to open the night.  He reminded our Scholars and Alumni of the mission of the Asian Future Leaders Scholarship Program (AFLSP) and encouraged them to share about their future career goals and develop connections with each other.

Together with Mr. Watanabe, Mr. Hideki IWABUCHI, Director of Ministry of Education, and Mr. ZHANG Yaqiang, Councilor of Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Japan, also gave welcome remarks.  They looked forward to hearing about the study abroad experiences of AFLSP Scholars and the expansion of their worldviews.

BXAI is so grateful for the support of BXAIJ and our friends of Bai Xian in Japan.  We send our sincere wishes for the new year to you all!
