Members will be extremely pleased to know that The British Ambassador in Tokyo, Mr David Warren has kindly agreed to give a talk to the Society during a forthcoming visit to London.
Mr Warren, who has been in post since the summer of 2008, has been asked to give his perceptions of the political, diplomatic and commercial situation in Japan. He has served twice before in the Tokyo Embassy and many of his other appointments have closely involved him in Japan – UK relations.
The annual talks by current British Ambassadors have provided very useful backdrops to the years ahead; they have been both relevant and useful and have always been extremely popular.
The Ambassador will speak for about 30-40 minutes, after which there will be time for discussionand questions. In the chair will be Mr Christopher Purvis. The Japanese Ambassador is also planning to be present.
A pay bar will be available in the Coffee Room from 6.00pm and also for a short time after the lecture. It can be reached by lift or stairs from the Main Hall of the Club, but coats and briefcases will have to be left in the cloakrooms which are downstairs in the basement level. You are therefore asked to arrive at the Club by 6.20 pm. Club rules require gentlemen to wear jackets and ties and for telephones to be switched off. The East India Club is in the north-west corner of St James’ Square. Please contact the Japan Society office on tel: 020 7828 6330 or email:
