Summarizing the results of the visit of the Japanese delegation to the Forum, Ryoji Miyata, Head of the Japanese Culture Agency, said: “In my opinion, the VI St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum, which was held before the Year of Japan and Russia, celebrated in our two countries in 2018, shall serve a new page in the process of strengthening and expanding cultural exchanges between our two countries. I am sure that the history of Japanese-Russian cooperation will continue. I will do everything in my power to help spearhead promotion of cultural exchanges between our two countries.”
