On March 14, the Signing Ceremony of Cultural Grant Assistance for opening a Japanese language center took place at Russian-Armenian University (RAU). The grant is provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan to support the procurement of equipment and construction of facilities to promote Japanese language, culture and higher education.
 
RAU Rector Mr. Armen Darbinyan welcomed the guests and expressed his gratitude to Mr. Eiji Taguchi, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Armenia. “I am very much pleased that Japanese Studies gain more and more popularity in Armenia. I am glad to say that RAU is on its way to become one of the main centers of Japanese studies in the region - we have developed cooperation with a number of Japanese universities, and our students have various opportunities to study at the partner universities.”
 
The Grant agreement was signed by Mr. Gagik Sargsyan, RAU Director of the Institute of Humanities, and Mr. Eiji Taguchi, the Ambassador of Japan to Armenia.
 
The Ambassador also took the floor and in his turn said, “Culture and language is the key factor for the mutual understanding between our nations. We, the Japanese Embassy, put the Japanese language promotion as our priority and we hope that the Japanese language center will become the platform for the Japanese language education not only in Russian-Armenian University but all Armenia”.      
 
The event closed by a thematic cultural program. The students of RAU Institute of Humanities presented a traditional Japanese dance, a performance in the Japanese language and an acoustic guitar piece. The cultural program was designed by the support of RAU Japanese language instructor Ms. Karine Karamyan.
