Masaki Noke, Japanese ambassador to Egypt said that a high-level mission is expected to visit Egypt early 2019, adding, “Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) has an idea to send a mission to Egypt early next year, including representatives from the major Japanese companies as well as JETRO officials.”

On the occasion of the Japanese embassy in Egypt celebrating the National Day today, Daily News Egypt interviewed Noke, to shed light on the diversified aspects of cooperation with Egypt including trade, investments, economy, tourism and culture, the transcript of which below, lightly edited for clarity:

Initially, would you give us a briefing about your past experiences before coming to Egypt in September?

Immediately before coming here, I was working at headquarters of Japan’s cabinet office as director general for International Peace Cooperation. Before that I was at Japan’s Foreign Ministry as a director general for the Consular Affairs Bureau.

I arrived at Cairo in September so only two months have passed, however, I have a very positive impression of this country and the Egyptians.
