The Central Bank of Hungary has the exclusive right of cash issuance (issuing Hungarian Forint banknotes and coins), and its primary objective is to achieve and maintain price stability. Its further tasks are: holding and managing official reserves in foreign currency and gold, setting and publishing official exchange rates, promoting the stability of the financial system. The major purpose of the visit was to describe and promote its newly established educational support program aimed toward collaboration and exchange between Hungarian universities and their Japanese partner schools.

The leader of the delegation Mr. Palotai expressed his hopes of lending financial assistance to Hungarian universities aiming to expand their international exchange programs. Mr. Ono expressed his gratitude for visiting Josai, and added that Josai will continue to strengthen ties with Hungary as the experience of spending quality time with our Hungarian partners have immensely benefitted our students in their job placement, while many students we received from Hungary are now working for international companies, having profited from their time at Josai.

Josai University Educational Corporation in the past 10 years has received more than 100 students on various exchange programs from Hungary, and is putting a great emphasis on programs with institutions of higher education in the Visegrad Group (V4): The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
