• Japan commits P117-M for scholarship project


    Japanese Ambassador Kazuhide Ishikawa and Secretary of Foreign Affairs Alan Peter Cayetano signed and exchanged notes on the Japanese Grant Aid for Human Resource Development Scholarship (JDS) project on June 22.

    This grant aid provides a fund amounting to ¥264 million (approximately P117 million) to cover 20 JDS fellows, consisting of Filipino young officials from various governmental institutions, entering Japan starting Academic Year 2017 to 2018.

    The project aims to enhance the JDS fellows’ expertise in their respective fields such as “Financial Reform, Investment and SME Promotion Policy,”“Public Policy,”“Transportation Infrastructure” and “Peace and Stabi­lity in Mindanao” and to help build a pool of future Filipino leaders who will greatly contribute to the country’s overall economic development by returning to and working in the Phi­lippines. To date, the Philippines has a total of 299 JDS fellows.
