Japan-France Local Government Exchange Conference


This Japan-France Local Government Exchange Conference was first held in October 2008 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Japanese-French relations, responding to the call of Nancy, France, and its sister city Kanazawa. Bringing many local governments from Japan and France together, this conference provides an opportunity for them to discuss matters of mutual interests. The event is held every other year.
