ISLAMABAD: A group of ten high school students from the Hasan Abdal Cadet College, along with their supervisor, will be visiting Japan for a week from September 13th to 19. They have been invited to visit the oriental nation by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) under the Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Programme in Science — also known as the “SAKURA Science Plan.”
In this regard, the Japanese Embassy organised a pre-departure orientation session for the visiting students apart from presenting them with their travel documents.
On the occasion, Japanese Ambassador Kuninori Matsuda congratulated the students for being selected for the programme.
He hoped that the young Pakistani high school students will get an opportunity during their visit to Japan to experience the modern scientific and technological advancements of the island nation.
The envoy further said that Japan will continue to help Pakistan in its efforts to develop its young human resource power.
The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) annually invites outstanding young students and young professionals from Asian countries on short-term visits to Japan to promote exchanges between the young Asian and Japanese researchers in the field of science and technology.
