International Exchange

Objective of our research on “international exchange”

Amidst an increasingly complex international situation, mutual understanding through global exchange of knowledge and culture will be more important than ever before. We hope to bring forth a world order appropriate for the new era by understanding the characteristics of the regions and nations in the world, providing insight on the latest world situation, and transmitting them.
CIGS will organically link its global human network to provide a global platform of knowledge creation needed by a chaotic world.
