The Japanese Government extends official development assistance (ODA) to partner countries to support self-help efforts that will lead to economic progress and a better life for the citizens of those countries.
Since its foundation in 1974, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has implemented Japan’s technical cooperation under the ODA program.
Currently, JICA conducts such activities as training, dispatch of experts, provision of equipment, project-type technical cooperation, development study, dispatch of cooperation volunteers (JOCV), survey and administration of capital grant aid programs.
The training program for overseas participants is one of JICA’s fundamental technical cooperation activities for partner countries. Participants come from overseas in order to obtain knowledge and technology in a wide variety of fields.
The objectives of the JICA training program are:
- To contribute to the development of human resources who will promote the advancement of partner countries, and
- To contribute to the promotion of mutual understanding and friendship
