16 March, 2022
On March 16, all the MSP students of batch 7, made their courtesy call on to RADM Awai, accompanied by Professor Furuya Kentaro. We all were warmly welcomed to his office and had a fruitful and friendly discussion for about 45 minutes. During the discussion RADM emphasized the importance of Maritime Domain Awareness, MDA and elaborated his initiatives in this field, including the installation of UAVs planned in October of this year. Moreover, we were fortunate to grab the essence of his long career in Japan Coast Guard which obviously, will be a career guidance for all middle grade officers like us. All the foreign students from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, shared their views regarding the stay in Japan while mentioning experience of snow for the first time in their life. Finally, we all wished him a happy life with wellbeing and good health, followed by exchange of souvenirs.
