The Minister of Works, Municipalities & Urban Planning Essam bin Abdullah Khalaf received the newly-appointed Ambassador of Japan to the Kingdom of Bahrain, Kiyoshi Asako.
The minister commended the distinguished relations between the two countries on the commercial, economic and industrial levels. He also hailed the role of the Embassy of Japan in enhancing commercial exchanges and investment opportunities between the two sides.
