JETRO to hold Japan festival in Pusan from Nov. 14.

TOKYO, Nov. 1 Kyodo

The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) said Thursday it will hold a five-day Japan festival in Pusan, South Korea, from Nov. 14 to promote better understanding between the two countries.

It will be the second festival JETRO has held in South Korea. The first was held in Seoul in February, the government-affiliated organization said.

At the festival, Japan's most up-to-date robot technology will be displayed and Japanese movies will be shown, JETRO said.

South Korea will hold a similar festival Nov. 15-19 in Osaka.

The festival was agreed in October 1998 at a summit between then Japanese Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi and South Korean President Kim Dae Jung to promote bilateral exchanges.
