H.E. Chilean Ambassador visited MIF

On April 24, H.E. Mr. Gustavo AYARES, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Chile to Japan, together with Ms. Catalina BARCELO, Second Secretary, visited MIF and had a very constructive meeting with Prof. Toshiaki HASHIMOTO, MIF’s Chairperson, and Prof. Keiichi KATAYAMA, Executive Director. MIF has ever invited 8 Chilean fellows since 1987. However, the total number of applicants from Latin American nations are decreasing recently. Ambassador AYARES agreed to continue conversations with MIF in order to make Latin American researchers/scholars pay more attention upon MIF Fellowship Program.
