TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 10, 2019
Tokyo – Fourteen Japanese high school students and two teachers are scheduled to visit Thailand from December 10th to 18th as part of the Japan’s Friendship Ties Programs “JENESYS 2019” promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
The group will observe the sites and facilities which was funded by Japan’s ODA and visit Japanese companies, through which they will learn the relationship between Japan and Thailand, and deepen the knowledge of Japanese contribution to international society. Through the experience of school exchange, they are expected to have a better understanding of culture and society of Thailand, and will also appeal Japanese culture during each program.
Through this program, we hope the participants proactively share the appeals of Japan and other information, contribute to enforcing the foundation of friendship between Japan and Thailand and promote the understanding of Japan in Thailand.
