Six Bound For Japan Training

Five civil servants, together with the chief executive officer of the Labasa Town Council will leave for training in Japan.

The training programme comes under the JICA Training Programme for Young Leaders from June 2 to 19, this year.

The six will take part in the Local Governance course at the JICA Kyushu Centre in the Fukuoka Prefecture.

The programme is conducted by JICA under a technical cooperation scheme of the Government of Japan with the purpose of promoting human resource development in developing countries, particularly young leaders who will become nation-building leaders in the future.

They will stay in Japan for three weeks to gain knowledge and skills in Japanese methods and practices; they will also experience the culture and lifestyle of the Japanese people. They will join participants from other regional countries like Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Samoa, Nauru, Cook Islands and Marshall Islands.

The purpose behind the training is to enhance the knowledge of participants by witnessing the Japanese system and knowing how to tackle the issues. The knowledge acquired will help participants solve key issues to improve local governance system in their countries.

Since the inception of the JICA Training Programme in Fiji in 1976, around 2600 Civil Servants have travelled to Japan for training.

This year JICA is offering 49 Group/Regional Focused Training Courses and two Young Leaders Training Programmes to the Government of Fiji. It will also offer counterpart trainings to Fiji Metrological Services, Ministry of Health and Water Authority of Fiji.
