100th Anniversary of Japan-Slovakia Relationship – Sponsorship of Cherry Tree Planting in Slovakia
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of relationship between Japan and the Slovak Republic. In commemoration of this, the Embassy of Japan in Slovakia organized the “Blooming Slovakia” project to plant 500 cherry blossom trees in Slovakia, and our company supported the project. Although the commemoration ceremony had been postponed due to COVID-19, it was held on June 8, 2021, hosted by the Embassy of Japan, inviting the mayor of Nitra and related people. Our company is an honorary consulate in Osaka due to the fact that we have a factory in Nitra, Slovakia (SIIX EMS Slovakia s.r.o.), and we donated a cherry blossom tree sapling in support of this commemorative project. We hope that this cherry blossom tree, which is appropriate for the 100th anniversary, will become a symbol that will unite the people of both countries for the next 100 years, and we will continue to cooperate in promoting bilateral relations.
