Greetings from Ambassador Noke

 

 

I am Masaki Noke, Ambassador of Japan to Egypt. My first visit to Egypt was 35 years ago, and I was very impressed by its long history and vibrant society. I have visited Egypt several times after that, and every time was fascinated by its charm.

Egypt is the most populated Arab country, and is the political, intellectual, and cultural center of the Arab world, and plays a key role in the Middle East peace process. Egypt will also chair the African Union (AU) in 2019. Furthermore, Egypt is now undergoing significant economic and social changes. It is a great honor for me to serve as the Ambassador of Japan at such a time.

Regarding bilateral relations, unique large-scale cooperation projects such as the introduction of Japanese-style education to Egyptian schools, and the construction of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) is underway. In the economic field, the current challenges are to encourage Japanese companies to expand their businesses to the Egyptian market with enormous potential, as well as fostering momentum for public-private partnership including the infrastructure sector. I will strive to enhance cooperation and exchange at all levels.

I will also make effort to strengthen interpersonal exchanges between Japan and Egypt, as we are currently seeing Japanese tourists returning to Egypt after the number dropped in 2011, and as Japan will host the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020.

In Egypt, over 1,000 Japanese residents are playing active roles in various fields and are underpinning bilateral relations between the two countries. I will support them, as well as Japanese visitors to Egypt, so that their times in Egypt would be safe and fruitful, by providing information on safety among others.

As the Ambassador of Japan, I am committed to collaborate with all related parties to enhance bilateral relations, and would appreciate your support and cooperation. Thank you.

September 2018
Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Japan to Egypt
Masaki Noke
