60 Pinoy students leave on December 8 for 2-week Japan-ASEAN exchange program

Davao City (8 December) -- Sixty students plus six teachers from all over the Philippines will leave the country for Japan on December 8, 2007 for its newest student exchange program called the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths Programme or the JENESYS Programme.

This is the first batch from the Philippines chosen by The Japanese Government, through the Japan Information and Cultural Center, Embassy of Japan, in cooperation with the AFS Intercultural program, among other organizations.

During their two-week stay, the students will experience homestay, interact with Japanese youths and visit traditional cities like Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto and Hiroshima and historical sites there. All these activities aim to deepen the students' understanding on Japanese politics, diplomacy, economics, society and culture.

The JENESYS Programme was launched based on the Japanese Government's announcement during the Second East Asia Summit (EAS) about the plan to invite 6,000 young people mainly from East Asia Summit (EAS) member countries to Japan every year for five years. It aims to lay the foundation for solidarity among Asian countries by promoting mutual understanding between the future generations of ASEAN and other East Asian countries. All expenses will be borne by the Japanese Government in cooperation with the ASEAN Secretariat.

Meanwhile, another batch, through The National Youth Commission (NYC), will leave in May 2008 and applications are still open until December 31, 2007. For further details, log on to the Embassy website at http://ww.ph.emb-japan.go.jp/index.htm or to the NYC website at http://www.youth.net.ph/. (COJ Davao-PIA XI) [top]
