The Embassy of the Argentine Republic in Japan and the Min-On are jointly working on a project, “BA Style” to introduce the fascination of Buenos Aires. An in-person event to launch the project was held on April 16, 2021, at the Min-On Culture Center, which was attended by 15 guests including Mr. Kozo Yamamoto, President of Japan-Argentina Parliamentary Friendship League and Mr. Teiji Hayashi, Director-General, South America Division, Latin American and Caribbean Affairs Bureau, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan while some 60 persons participated online.
The event began with greetings by H.E. Mr. Guillermo Juan Hunt, Ambassador of the Argentine Republic in Japan, followed by a presentation of the contents of the BA Style project. Henceforth, the embassy and Min-On will be working hand in hand to share the culture of tango, gourmet, sports, lifestyle, fashion and local information of the country.
