George welcomes Minister Okada

George had the pleasure this week of welcoming Takashi Okada, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of Japan, who has recently been appointed Deputy Chief of Mission at the Japanese Embassy.

George and Minister Okada talked about a range of issues including trade, Brexit, and international security. They agreed on the need for continued and further co-operation between Britain and Japan, and discussed some of the opportunities for this in the future.

The Minister’s office said he was “very pleased” with the trip, and the Minister has happily accepted an invitation to return for a tour of the Houses of Parliament.
