The international center, which was established in 2009, has played an important role in the promotion of international exchange activities of the university in China, and is expected to continue to play a significant role in the future." Director General Zhang gave his greetings as follows: "Tottori University is our most important partner university, and we have maintained exchange for over 10 years.
