Japan to invite 3,000 ASEAN youths to stay
Japan ambassador for ASEAN Takio Yamada has invited 3,000 youngsters from the ASEAN region to live in Japan for the next 1.5 years as part of the Kizuna project, which is aimed at strengthening ties between Japan and its ASEAN counterparts.
“We have organized a series of training activities while they are in Japan,” he said in Pangkal Pinang, Bangka-Belitung on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.
He says the live-in program will start from January next year.
The Kizuna Project was initially aimed at gathering voluntary workers to reconstruct buildings after this year’s tsunami.
