On Saturday, June 9, 2012, a Japan-Republic of China Goodwill Association of Oita Prefecture Gathering was held inviting Taiwanese students currently studying in Oita Prefecture. Thirteen Taiwanese students from APU attended.
Many Association representatives and guests attended this gathering including TSENG Nien-tsu of the Taipei Economic and Culture Representative Office in Fukuoka who offered a few words of encouragement to the Taiwanese students. The event was a great opportunity for fellow expats to meet and catch up on the latest developments in Taiwan. A raffle was also held for return tickets to Taiwan and everyone in the audience watched keenly to see who would be the lucky one to win the prize. The event was a great success and came to a close with strong expectations for the further strengthening of Japan-Taiwan friendship.
