Uli Wienrich (ECO 1999-2010) and Albrecht Rothacher (ECO 1980-1982) report from Tokyo on the kick-off meeting they held in January for an EUI alumni chapter in Japan.
The small group discussed how the chapter could be organized, given the small number of EUI alumni in Japan. One option could be to form a joint EUI/College of Europe Chapter.
The group is also exploring the possibility of organizing a wider chapter for the region, and will be researching and contacting chapters in neighbouring countries.
The group hopes to host discussions with guest speakers on issues such as the EU Delegation’s activities in Japan and the EU-Japan negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement and a Strategic Partnership Agreement.
