The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has played a leading role in Japan’s participation in World Expositions since Expo Osaka in 1970. This year, METI is acting as organizer together with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) for the Japan Pavilion in Expo Milano 2015, which will be held under the theme of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.”

With “Harmonious Diversity” as our own motto in keeping with the expo’s theme, the Japan Pavilion will seek to convey how the wisdom and technology cultivated through the development of Japanese food, and food culture, including fermenting methods and preservation technology, can contribute to solving issues common to all humankind such as food shortage.
