On March 28, Consul General Maeda received a courtesy call by five high school students from Fukuoka City who joined the Fukuoka-Atlanta Youth Exchange Program. Atlanta city and Fukuoka city signed a sister city agreement in 2005. The Fukuoka-Atlanta Youth Exchange Program provides the next generation with opportunities to acquire an international awareness and promote mutual understanding by experiencing life and culture overseas through school visits and homestays in Atlanta.

Consul General Maeda received reports on students’ experiences during the program and answered many questions about his duties as a diplomat and his past experiences abroad. Consul General Maeda encouraged the young people to spread their wings overseas and become bridges of friendship between Japan and the world.
