PGMA hails Japanese educators for helping Pinoys

Quezon City (24 November) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo praised today the visiting officers of the prestigious Graduate Research Institute for Policy Studies of Japan (GRIPS) for their academic contribution in enhancing the Filipino talent and skills in policy and diplomatic studies.

The President met this morning at Malacanang's Music Room Dr. Takashi Shiraishi, GRIPS president, along with its other officers including Dr. Tatsuo Oyama.

They were accompanied by Japanese Ambassador Ryuichiro Yamazaki, Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary Romeo Manalo, and JJ Samuel Soriano, president of the Philippine Resource Organization on Japanese Enterprise Capital and Technology (PROJECT).

"Welcome to the Philippines. This is another event to celebrate the golden jubilee of the Philippines-Japan diplomatic relations. Thank you for your contribution and dedication in enhancing the Filipino talent and skills," the President told them.

For their part, the visiting Japanese educators thanked the President for the warm accommodation and promised to further enhance their educational system to produce more excellent Filipino educators.

GRIPS is considered as Japan's version of the JFK School of Government (Harvard) that started its international policy studies program in 1984 originally for government officials from the ASEAN and Korea through its more than two decades of existence.

About 100 Filipinos have graduated from this prestigious school and many of them now hold key positions both in the government and the private sector. (PIA) [top]
