Delegation of Hungarian Parliament Members Tour Josai University

On July 9th, 2009 Dr. Navracsics Tibor, Head of the Hungarian parliamentary group Fidesz- Fidesz is Hungary’s largest opposition political party. A party leader is equivalent to the head of a parliamentary faction in Japan’s Diet as the highest ranking position of a faction or party- who visited Japan at the invitation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, observed Josai University’s Hungarian class (taught by Professor Akiyama Shingo) together with Chancellor MIZUTA. He gave a speech to the class, “On the Present State of Hungary,” followed by a Q & A session, interacting with the students of the class. In response to a student’s question “what is the appeal of Japan?” he said, “it is the democratic system of Japan, along with its political and economic stability that is one of the best in the world.” He furthered, “I highly evaluate Japan. And today I am profoundly impressed by the fact that so many students here are studying very difficult Hungarian and will be working hard in order to become a mediator who could further facilitate the relationship between Hungary and Japan.”
