Heisei 22 Certified Business Report Meeting

《Report Session》
The Heisei 22 School Town Collaboration Certification Business Report Session and the Heisei 23 Business Recruitment Briefing Session were held on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at Campus Plaza Kyoto.
On the day of the event, many people including students and university officials, city officials, but also the general public attended, and activity reports were made from 10 organizations adopted in Heisei 22.
In the course of planning and operating various initiatives in the region, we have faced many issues, and the results of the project will be a great asset for both students and the community, and I believe that we can utilize them in future activities.
I hope that such initiatives will be carried out on an ongoing basis, not one-offs, and that new businesses will be created and a cycle of revitalization will circulate in each ward of Kyoto City!
