Japan's strengths are utilized in "human resource development," one of the cornerstones of development cooperation.

Education is a fundamental right that should be enjoyed equally by all people and it is the foundation for building sustainable social and economic development. For supporting partner countries in this important field, Japan's own experience in spreading quality education as a basis for development, and its past development cooperation experience that has taken advantage of its strengths such as systematic textbooks and teaching materials, teacher training systems, and support from parents and local communities, can be considered effective.

Similarly, in light of Japan's development experience and the role universities have played, Japanese universities can continue to contribute in various ways to strengthening of higher educational institutions in partner countries and fostering leaders who know and feel close to Japan, which will also contribute to the internationalization of Japanese universities.
