Her Royal Highness Princess Raya Bint Al-Hussein has sponsored a series of virtual seminars highlighting Japan's development and modernization drive over the years.

The seminars, organized by the Faculty of Foreign Languages at the University of Jordan (UJ) in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), aimed to shed light on the contemporary history of Japan, and to introduce students to Japan's renaissance and development.

In an opening speech, Princess Raya commended cooperation between JICA and UJ, and their role toward cementing cultural ties between Jordan and Japan.

She expressed her admiration for Japan's efforts to preserve its values and culture during its march toward modernity, saying: "Japan has managed to adapt to foreign influence, modify and shape it to naturally fit the local culture to become part of a unique Japanese unit."

JICA President Shinichi Kitaoka stressed Jordanian-Japanese relations and said cooperation between the Kingdom and JICA dates back to 1974. He indicated that his country managed to achieve development without abandoning its local traditions and culture.

UJ President Dr. Abdul-Karim Qudah said: "The renaissance witnessed in Japan has made the country a role model to be followed at various levels," stressing that the university is keen to benefit from the Japanese culture by teaching the Japanese language in it.
