Rosie and I had the chance yesterday to meet with the Deputy Mayor of Handa City (where we`re currently based). This meeting was a great surprise as we thought we were only going to see the city hall. It turns out that Deputy Mayor Norihito Fujimoto has an extensive background in land use planning so I was able to ask a number of questions. From Rosie`s marketing background, it also turns out that the City has adopted an innovative way to market its vision: 'Handa Ship 2010: Friend Ship, Partner Ship, Leader Ship'.
Yet another successful visit and unique learning opportunity provided by Rotarians.
