A group of 15 young officials working as Assistant Commissioners and Upazila Nirbahi Officers are visiting Japan for 18 days from March 02 to 20, 2014 under the Young Leaders' Training Program of JICA.
Under the program, young leaders, who will become nation-building leaders in the future, are invited to Japan for 18 days to be provided with opportunities to 1) develop their specialties through experiencing and learning technologies and skills in Japan, and 2) increase their willingness to resolve issues on their own.
Through participation in this program, the participants are expected to understand the current situation and issues of the South Asia region, and acquire the knowledge on the structure and policies of local governance. Learn the local governance method of making network with other groups in the region in order to develop the safe city through the exchange of information and opinions.
During their stay, participants are going to visit Okayama Prefecture to observe and learn local government system of Japan, observe central government functions in Tokyo and stay with a Japanese family to experience Japanese household.
Capacity development and improvement of governance are the major focus area of our cooperation.
Every year, JICA invites about 200 Bangladeshi professionals for training in Japan in different sectors. These professionals are contributing to the socio-economic development of Bangladesh with their knowledge acquired in Japan.
