Guest : Ms. Rikke Lind, Vice Minister of Ministry of Trade and Industry of Kingdom of Norway
Ms. Rikke Lind, Vice Minister of Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Kingdom of Norway, recently visited Miraikan. She came to Japan to attend "Nordic Green Japan", an international conference on energy and environmental technology, held at Miraikan.
A science communicator provided a tour of Miraikan, highlighting exhibitions on information science, the Geo-scope, and a demonstration of ASIMO. Seeing seismic zones over the world on Geo-Scope, she seemed to be interested in the frequency of earthquakes in Japan.
Japan can learn from Norway's approach to the environment and energy, and we believe Ms. Lind's visit will serve to deepen the relationship between the two countries.
