JENESYS 2.0: Science and Technology 12th Batch (Robotic Industry) Students and Youth Exchange (Lao PDR)
22 May 2014
From 20 to 27 May, about 25 university and vocational school students from Lao PDR are visiting Japan as part of a programme on the theme of “Robotic Industry” under JENESYS 2.0.
Participants first visited Tokyo to observe an advanced technology facility. Then they visited Chiba Prefecture. In order to have a first-hand experience with the “Cool Japan” that is highly acclaimed and attracting a large attention in many fields, the participants will have an opportunity to feel the attractions of the prefecture on various aspects through visiting a local government, a local company and popular sights, having cultural experience as well as exchanging views with local residents.
This programme is expected to enable youths from Lao PDR to deepen their understanding of and interest in “Japan brand” and Japanese values including its strengths and attractions, and to disseminate their experiences in their country.
