Seven Japanese enterprises on Feb. 29 awarded scholarships worth $147,000 to students and postgraduates of the University of Transport and Communications in Hanoi.
The firms are Nippon Steel Group, Nippon Steel Pipe Vietnam, Kawakin Holdings Group, JGC Group, IHI group, Itochu Vietnam and A Chau Vietnam equipment solutions company.
Nippon Steel Group is the leading donor with 126,000 USD given to two lecturers to pursue post-graduate training in Japan. The rest will be used as annual scholarship for students.
The activity is an idea of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), aiming to help Vietnam train its human resources to meet the increasing demand for technology transfer between Japan and Vietnam.
JICA Chief Representative in Vietnam, Tsuno Motonori, pointed out that transportation is the largest sector using Japan’s ODA in Vietnam. Many key transportation works have applied Japan’s latest technologies. Japanese firms plan to transfer the most up-to-date technologies to Vietnam through universities.
JICA also pledges to create optimum conditions for Japanese enterprises and Vietnam’s universities to boost cooperation.
