"Ah right. So sponsored tour groups with several travel agencies. I assume student exchange would be exchange programs and semesters abroad between our students with several universities?"

RE: Yosainese-Reitzmanic Summit
General Secretary Watanabe smiled "Fantastic, well alright,please, this way." The General Secretary then guided Prime Minister Simon Bridges to the conference room. And then sat down
"Now Mr Bridges before we begin I just want to outline the agenda's that both of us want to address. My overall agenda's here will be laying the foundation of a free trade agreement, and the next thing is a possible ease of access visa agreement. Those are my goals that I hope to lay the foundation for with this conference. Of course we won't get into the full force of this yet but today is about laying foundations. Before we begin however I would like to know what your agenda would be today and what you think the League of Yosainese Republics can offer."
RE: Yosainese-Reitzmanic Summit
The two delegates giggled in jest. Staffers assisted Prime Minister Bridges with his belongings and left the rest to his staffers. and guided him to the cars and security detail that will be taking him there to the Executive Blue Manor. After an short drive they had arrived to the manor.
After arriving Prime Minister Bridges found himself at the front with General Secretary Junichi Watanabe.
He bowed and then approached with a handshake. "Prime Minister, how are you? I apologise I wasn't at the airport to greet you. I was on the phone to my Secretary of Finance going back and forth over budgetary concerns within an upcoming infrastructure project. You know it is I would imagine." He said as he chuckled lightly.

RE: Yosainese-Reitzmanic Summit
Secretary of State Maiyuko Sakai was waiting down the stairs of the escalators with her colleague Secretary of Commerce and Industrey Haiji Narusegawa along with 10 secret servicemen around them. There were also 30 staffers at the chosen terminal which they have booked out away from the sights of the media, all were tending to the needs of the officials and will also be tending to the needs of the Prime Minister when he arrives. They didn't wan t the Reitzmanic Prime Minister to be bombarded by the press just yet. that will be for the Press Conference after the meeting. Secretary of State Maiyuko Sakai was the first to greet him when he walked down to the terminal.
"Ah, Good Morning Prime Minister welcome to Yosai, I hope your journey was a good one." She said as she approached Simon Bridges as she politely bowed.
Secretary of Commerce Haiji Narusegawa also bowed but also chose to approach the Prime Minister to shake his hand. "Apologies Prime Minister Bridges, the General Secretary couldn't be here. Knowing him he is probably arguing with the Finance Secretary." He said with a gentle smile and a subtle sense of deadpan humor.
General Secretary Junichi Watanabe was in his office, hearing from his cheaif of staff that the Prime Minister of Reitzmag Simon Bridges was coming. All the preperations were set. This will be the first leader he has met with since he was elected a few months back. He was in his office reading over new plans to update the Yosainese subway system with various government tenders on his desk. He spent most of the previous day in the office with the Secretary of Transportation, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Secretary of Finance in order to go over the contracts, budgets, materials and procurement and assorted permits needed. Now however He will need put domestic policy and development behind and focus on the task at hand. He went down to the front entrance of the executive blue manor to meet his Reitzmanic counterpart.

Yosai United Party
Political Position: Centre-Centre Right
Ideology: Communitarianism, One Nation Conservatism, Third Way Economics
Synopsis: The United Yosai Party is the only governing party in Yosai. Initially the party started out as a revolutionary republican movement dedicated to the overthrow of militaristic and feudal rule of the last Shogun and the end of the Shosei Era. The ruling party since 1960, it was founded in 1952 as a nationalist political movement, it has gone on to dominate the political system of the nation. The party’s main purpose was the removal of the Shogunate regime of the aristocratic district Lords and modernise the state. The Party has been credited with consistent and stable economic stewardship and the secularisation of the state and doing away with a feudalistic caste system as they saw it as a way of perpetuating poverty.
Positioned on the centre-right of conventional politics and is usually considered ideologically conservative, the party has adopted policies a kin to economic liberalism; favouring free market policies, however also putting up strong competition and consumer protection laws to root out dubious trade practices as well as financial services oversight to cushion the effects of market shortfall, as well as establishing various welfare programs such as unemployment payments in the form of training and upskilling to ensure a skilled workforce and employability in order to cushion the effects of market failure.
To that end however the party has been seen to evolve to a more economically third way minded and centrist with their Keynesian policies. Socially due to Yosai’s ethnic homogeneity the UYP is usually seen as socially conservative and favours traditional social institutions over social pluralism, however that is changing over time. Foreign policy wise they prefer neutrality over interfering with other nations affairs, the rationale behind this is that being a patchwork of small city states they don’t have the current influence to do so, as well as showing mutual respect to other nations governments.
