Students listening to the Presentation
Students keenly listened to the presentation and raised several comments and questions. Such voices include appreciations for the occasions to meet Japanese in person and know about Japan and questions about the Japanese companies which they can apply after the graduation and scholarship for Japanese Universities as well as Japanese language courses in Ankara.
Presentation of Mr. Ali AYCI
At the second session, Mr. Ali AYCI from Small and Medium Enterprises Development Organization (KOSGEB), who is also an ex-participant of JICA, made a presentation on "Strengthening of Business Development Services (BDS) for Industrial Promotion". The most interesting parts for the students were the details of innovation and Japanese business manners.
This was the first trial for us to offer presentation to students in Turkey. We found several points to be improved as well. However, we do hope that our presentation shall be a good chance to deepen their understandings about Japan as well as provide some good hints for their future.
The SEMINAR has just opened and started. This held at Yildirim Beyazit University was the first one and the SEMINAR will be continued and offered upon request anytime and anywhere in Turkey. We are waiting request for the SEMINAR and welcome whoever of Turkish Friends!!
