Nigeria and Japan have concluded plans to collaborate in exchange of technology expertise towards improving the capacity of officials of government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs).
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja by Akiko Kawamoto of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
It stated that the agency would collaborate with the Federal Ministry of Education to organise a two-day workshop with a theme ‘JICA Overseas Training Multiplier Effect Workshop’.
It said that the objective of the workshop was to bring together people that have gained from the agency’s sponsorship in attending training on the teaching of science and mathematics in Japan.
“We plan to transfer Japanese specialised knowledge and technology in areas where Japan had developed expertise in order to improve the capacities of counterpart government ministries, departments and agencies”.
The release stated that the training programme would be implemented in collaboration with Japanese national and local governments, universities, private enterprises and NGOs.
