Barbados: JAPAN BUILDS ON RELATIONSHIP WITH THE UWI CAVE HILL CAMPUS

The Embassy of Japan in Barbados is ensuring that students of The University of the West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill Campus gain a better understanding of Japanese life and culture. A donation of books on contemporary Japan has therefore been presented to The Sidney Martin Library.

Principal, Pro-Vice Chancellor Professor V. Eudine Barriteau accepted the literature which covers Japanese history, economic conditions, life and culture from Ambassador of Japan to Barbados, H.E. Teruhiko Shinada, yesterday.

“I am told that this generous contribution was as a result of the hard work and ingenuity of Ambassador Shinada, who recommended to The Nippon Foundation that our Library be considered for such a donation. Of course, I am not surprised, as Ambassador Shinada has always demonstrated a keen interest in the academic development of the Cave Hill Campus,” Professor Barriteau pointed out.

“I am sure that these books will foster a deeper knowledge of historic and contemporary Japan, providing valuable knowledge of one of Asia’s and indeed the world’s, strong and continuous civilizations.”
