Trinidad: Japan to help TT with disaster prevention

JAPANESE Ambassador to TT Tatsuo Hirayama has agreed to lend his country’s technological expertise to mitigate the impact of natural disasters in the Caribbean, including TT.

With Japan hosting the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Ambassador Hirayama has also offered help with visas for athletes and visitors and is exploring opportunities to put together a package which may include air fare, accommodation and transfers.

Those were among areas of co-operation discussed with San Fernando mayor Junia Regrello during a courtesy visit on Monday, the ambassador’s first since his arrival in January. He replaced Ambassador Mitsuhiko Okada who served in the position for four years.
