Sasakawa Fellows’ Network Meeting
February 14, 2018 - 3:38pm

A regional forum for Sasakawa Fellows from Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, plus UK-domiciled Fellows, was held in London from 28 to 31 January 2018. 

The meeting, organised by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation with the sponsorship of The Nippon Foundation, brought together 25 Sasakawa Fellows to discuss the latest trends and innovations in the maritime sectors in their home countries. They also discussed strategies to develop the global Sasakawa Fellows’ Network. 

The Fellows were honoured to be received at IMO, where they were delighted to meet with the Secretary-General and WMU’s Chancellor, Mr Kitack Lim and Mr Fred Kenney, IMO’s Director of Legal Affairs and External Relations.

WMU was represented at the meeting by the Registrar, Susan Jackson, who said “The Network Meeting was a wonderful opportunity for the Sasakawa Fellows, who graduated in WMU classes from 1999 to 2017, to meet, exchange ideas and build strong bonds of common purpose and friendship.”
