RIA PrimaMedia.

- The task of the Japan Center is to convey to Russian businessmen what our country has learned. There was a time when Japan itself adopted experience, learned from other countries. This year, 183 people will study at the Japan Center. This is more than last year, so we can say that the interest of Russian businessmen is growing, - said the director.

Kazunori Kawahara also added that the Japan Center is outside politics, so the "Ukrainian conflict" will not affect the work of the institution in any way.

- In connection with the new sanctions, the work of the Japan Center will not change. We do not exist for this, our goal is business, no politics. I also want to note that the Ukrainian events, in my opinion, are not a decisive factor in strengthening relations between Japan and Russia. We are territorial neighbors, therefore we must develop cooperation, - said Mr. Kawahara.
