It was all day event from 9AM to 8PM composed of 5 sessions. Ambassador Robach started the day with sharing his view on the relation between Japan and Sweden. 

There were variety of seminars, i.e. not only learning about the basic of Sweden, but also getting knowledge about its innovation and history.

Some lecturers shared their experience representing Swedish companies in Japan, which inspired the audience.


During lunch, participants tried surströmming, the most smelly food in the world and they also tried Swedish Aquavit singing "Helan Går".

After a full day of sessions, all attendees got a well deserved SCCJ academy diploma to certify this achievement.
