On November 4, Marco Lombardi, the consul general of Italy based in Osaka, visited Okinawa and met with vice governor Mitsuo Ageda. Lombardi said the number of Italian tourists visiting Okinawa has increased, and that he would like to deepen friendship and cooperation with Okinawa, especially in the economic and tourism fields.

He mentioned that many Italian travel companies promote Okinawa as a tour destination. He said, “Okinawa has the southern islands exotic atmosphere. It’s so different from Italy and very attractive. We would like to develop our friendship and establish cooperative and beneficial relationships.”

Mitsuo Ageda said, “We want to become more familiar with Italian people.”

The consul general visited Okinawa to take part in an Italian wine promotion event at the Busena Terrace on November 3 in Nago.
