The 2nd International Seminar for Research Works in Asian Countries was held on Friday 25th July 2014 with the objective of making use of the research results in press-in engineering in practice worldwide. Of the researchers and engineers who had attended the 7th IPA Press-in Technology Seminar in Kochi the previous day, 18 people got together, and presented their researches and exchanged opinions, with Dr. Goh Teik Lim as moderator.

Prior to the seminar, they made a factory tour in the corporate office of the GIKEN LTD., followed by a site trip in the Kochi coastal area (Nii, Tosa), which had been introduced by Mr. Ozaki, governor of the Kochi Prefecture the previous day. It was a good opportunity to feel the latest press-in technology and the front line of disaster prevention measures.
