Johannesburg Branch and Chair of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Ghaleep Jeppie, Chief Director of the International Relations Office at the Department of Higher Education and Training Ambassador Yutaka Yoshizawa of Japan in South Africa and Mr Hiroyuki Kinomoto, Head of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in South Africa.

Fourteen applicants out of 50 from South Africa were chosen for the African Business Education Initiative.

The initiative, which was announced at the 5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) will offer opportunities for young eligible Africans to study for their Master's degree at Japanese universities.  

In addition they will serve internships at Japanese enterprises in order to develop effective skills and knowledge in various fields.

The applicants were drawn from various fields in engineering, market research, education and others from the private and public sector in South Africa.  

They were excited about the opportunity and were looking forward to a life changing experience in Japan.

They were keen to play roles as envoys to deepen the people to people relations between Japan and South Africa.

Mr Yoshiki Takizawa General Manager at Mitsui & Co. Johannesburg Branch and Chair of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry was especially happy to invite the applicants to partake in the Japanese culture and emerge enriched by their interactions and engagements in Japan.

After a stringent selection process which involved a written examination in English and Mathematics, and interviews via video links with Japanese Universities, the chosen ones will spend the next two years in Japan.
