This came when Ambassador Yoshimasa Tezuka, presented his credentials to Governor General Dr. Sir Cuthbert Sebastian and was told that the federation is looking forward to consolidating and strengthening its already good cooperation with the Asian nation.
Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas in welcoming Ambassador Tezuka said St. Kitts and Nevis needs Japanese assistance to train Kittitians and Nevisians in auto mechanic, refrigeration, small engine repairs and maintenance among several areas.
The Japanese diplomat thanked Prime Minister Douglas for the kind message received from him following the earthquake and tsunami that devastated a part of Japan.
He told Dr. Douglas that Japan was willing to provide assistance in the areas identified and noted recent training in the areas of waste management and fishing.
Ambassador Tezuka visted the Japanese-funded Basseterre Fisheries Complex and the Old Road Fisheries Complex on Friday and will on Monday sign the agreement for the new Fisheries Complex to be constructed in Nevis.
