September 25, 2016: The 10th Anniversary Symposium of JCIC-Cultural Heritage

Mr. Mahmood Abdulaal, First Secretary, attended the 10th Anniversary Symposium of Japan Consortium for International Cooperation in Cultural Heritage (JCIC-Cultural Heritage) titled as “The Future that Cultural Heritage Leads to” on September 25, 2016. The friendship between Bahrain and JCIC-Cultural Heritage goes back to 2011 when JCIC-Cultural Heritage has sent a team of Japanese researchers to Bahrain for preservation and restoration of local cultural heritage sites upon a request from the Ministry of Culture in Bahrain. Field surveys of Qal’at al-Bahrain, Arad Fort, A’ali Burial Mounds, and other burial mounds and cemeteries were held by the Japanese researchers.
