Dear all,

The University of Tokyo Latin American Students Association is pleased to invite you all to the event
The Pacific Alliance: Challenges and Opportunities for Japan.

The Pacific Alliance is a regional integration effort between Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile to
expand their economies and increase the well-being of their citizens. One of its main objectives is
to reach the Asia-Pacific region and make it their partner in growth and development. It is therefore
a very interesting partner for Japan.

experts from the Japanese private, public and academic sectors.

At the end of the event, there will be a tasting of food and drinks of the four member countries.
This will be followed by a fashion show and party by the Association of Sri Lankan Students.
