"We firmly believe that Japananese medical technologies and services can be of vital assistance in resolving the health problems afficting the  people of Indonesia, who are in the midst of emerging and rapidly changing lifestyle," Fukuoka remarked in a press statement released here on Tuesday.

The seminar will be attended by Indonesian Health Minister Nafsiah Mboi and Vice Minister for International Affairs of Japan′s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry Norihikko Ishiguro, and Japanese Ambassador to Indonesia Yoshinori Katori.

As of now, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are one of the grave healthcare issues affecting both Indonesia and japan, he claimed.
