As part of the Honno Kote initiative, almost 500 Japanese books have been added to the OBIC East Asian Book Corner. A Hungarian journalist living in Japan, Sandy Juhász collected 20,000 books with around 10,000 volunteers in 2 months in order to support the Japanese language studies in Hungary and to bring closer the Japanese culture.
The project is linked to the 150th anniversary of the Hungarian-Japanese diplomatic relations; within its framework, mainly mangas and books about Japanese culture have arrived to the OBIC Book Corner in the Library of BBS FIMB. They will be available for readers from January. 
Thank you!

The Oriental Business and Innovation Center (OBIC) was established by the Budapest Business School, University of Applied Sciences and the Central Bank of Hungary in 2016.

OBIC's overall goal is to improve the competitiveness of the Hungarian economy by contributing to a better understanding of the East Asian region. To achieve its objective, OBIC aspires to become a leading institution in oriental business studies - not only in Hungary, but in the broader Central European region as well - by the application of its cutting-edge knowledge and efficient operation. As such, OBIC also plays a major role in the implementation of the international strategy of BBS. In its work OBIC concentrates on the following target countries: India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the People's Republic of China, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and many others in the Asia-Pacific region.
