The Consulate General of the People's Republic of China in Niigata is also responsible for Miyagi, Fukushima and Yamagata prefectures, and Consul General Sun has been the region's consul general for two years.
Although this was the first time that President Ohno and Consul General Sun had met, they connected easily and spoke about the achievements of the many Chinese students, educators and researchers enrolled at Tohoku University. They also discussed the promotion of future exchanges between China and the Tohoku region.
After the meeting, Consul General Sun travelled to Kawauchi Campus and attended a round-table meeting and seminar with Chinese students currently studying at Tohoku University.
