61 Training Programmes for around 80 Pakistani trainees in FY2020

Islamabad: The Japanese Government has offered training programmes, which are held in Japan for Pakistani nationals every year as a part of development cooperation for the further development of Pakistan.

These programmes are implemented by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency), thanks to the support by Japanese ministries, municipalities, universities and relevant organizations.

Although around 80 trainees are to participate in a total of 61 courses in FY2020, due to restriction on overseas travel by the COVID-19 pandemic, these curriculums had to be reconsidered. Therefore, JICA is exploring alternative methods such as online courses so that opportunities to participate in the trainings will not be lost even in challenging times. The programmes are gradually being decided as shown in the attached tables. The programmes will restart on a full scale once the pandemic calms down.

Japanese Government would be pleased if these trainees who will learn many things in Japan could build a bright future of Pakistan, said a Japanese embassy statement.
