Activities and Events
The JLGC Seminar (previously Japan Day Seminar) is an annual event organised by Japan Local Government Centre to raise awareness of Japan’s cities and regions, providing a real-time opportunity to exchange information and ideas on local government policy and best practice concerning both the UK and Japan.
A report for the 2018 Seminar in Derby can be seen here.
