Japan's Friendship Ties Programs JENESYS 2019 ASEAN Outbound Program 3rd Batch

Theme: Japanese Culture Exchange
Country: Republic of the Union of Myanmar

TOKYO--()--Fifteen Japanese university students are scheduled to visit Republic of the Union of Myanmar from November 26th to December 4th as part of the Japan’s Friendship Ties Programs “JENESYS 2019” promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

The group will visit local enterprises, including Japanese-affiliated companies, and Japanese ODA sites. They are expected to learn the relationship between Japan and Myanmar, and deepen the knowledge of Japanese contribution to Myanmar. Moreover, through the experience of school exchange, and traditional culture, they are expected to have a better understanding of culture and society of Myanmar and to convey the appeal of Japanese culture during each program.

Through this program, we hope the participants proactively share the appeals of Japan and other information after returning to Japan and it ties the relationships between Japan and Myanmar.
