Japan Chamber of Commerce to hold APEC-IT seminar in Dumaguete

by Jennifer Catan-Tilos

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 15 (PIA) -- The Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) in the Philippines, Inc. is expected to hold a website training and marketing to 80 students and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Dumaguete City.

The two-day training will be held on January 19 to 20 at Foundation University's James Herring Audio-Visual Room.

Executive Director of the North Luzon Growth Quadrangle Area, Dr. Hermenegildo Dumlao is bringing the seminar to Negros Oriental through the auspices of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation-Information Technology (APEC-IT) program.

This started in selected countries in 2002, and the Philippines was one of the selected country-beneficiaries of Japan’s development assistance program in information technology, Dumlao said.

The APEC-IT training program was an offshoot of the 4th APEC Human Resources Development Ministerial Meeting held in Japan on September 2001, which recognized among others, the importance of cooperation and information sharing between and among economies in bridging the digital divide and foster human resources development in developing countries within the region.

The training is made possible by the sponsorship of the Overseas Vocational Training Association (OVTA) and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan through the initiative of the APEC- Human Resource Development Seminar/Training Programme on the Adoption of IT of APEC-IT.

Fujitsu Corporation will provide the speakers for the two-day APEC-IT seminar. (PIA/JCT)
