Japan will execute seven technical programs in Pakistan

The Japanese government has agreed to launch seven new technical cooperation programmes in Pakistan to meet the social demands of emerging companies and to build their capability at the federal and provincial levels.

The Japanese embassy in Pakistan said on Monday that these programmes are part of a total of 25 technical cooperation programs that the Japanese government would conduct in Pakistan.

The projects and expert dispatches for improvement in the health, education, agriculture, gender, and information technology sectors are part of the cooperation programmes, which will be conducted by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) during a three-year period.

Apart from ensuring that these programmes are implemented effectively, Jica will also undertake online training to share Japanese expertise and experience in light of the Covid-19 pandemic’s travel restrictions.

Matsuda Kuninori, the Japanese ambassador, expressed his confidence about the new cooperation programmes, saying that their successful execution will considerably benefit the Pakistani government and people at the federal and provincial levels.

One of the major areas for Japanese support, he added, was capacity building in the health, education, agricultural, gender, and ICT sectors.

Mr. Matsuda expressed the expectation that these projects would contribute to Pakistan’s bright future while also strengthening bilateral ties.
