Dr. Tanaka, an ophthalmologist by training, will serve as Honorary Consul-General to represent the interest of the country of Singapore and its people in central Japan.

In addition, Dr. Tanaka's office will be handling consular matters.

Dr. Tanaka and the Menicon Co., Ltd. are proud of this appointment, given that the Nagoya region is Japan's most important area after the areas of Tokyo and Osaka where Singapore is represented by their own offices of Embassy and General Consulate respectively.

"I am very gratified to have been selected for this post," Dr. Tanaka said. "I look forward to doing my utmost to strengthen social, cultural and commercial ties between Japan and Singapore."

Singapore is the site of Menicon's new state-of-the-art research and manufacturing facility, which will produce Menicon's new daily disposable contact lenses, scheduled to be launched in a few years.
