Annual Assembly of Japan Scholars



On 15 February 2016, the Embassy of Japan hosted the Annual Assembly of Japan scholars belonging to an alumni association of former scholarship students to Japan.


H.E. Mr. Kiyoshi Koinuma, the Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Zambia delivered his speech, mentioning that he would like to enhance academic exchanges between Zambia and Japan by focusing on the youth, emphasizing a significant role to be played by members of the Japan Scholars as a cornerstone of relations between the two countries. The Guest of Honour, Hon. Sydney Mushanga, M.P. Deputy Minister of Higher Education, expressed appreciation for Japan’s assistance for academic exchanges. A delegation from the Hokkaido University including Prof. Hiroaki TERAO, Vice-President of the Hokkaido University, also attended the assembly and actively exchanged views with Japan Scholars.

The Government of Japan is offering scholarships to international students who wish to study in postgraduate or graduate programs at Japanese universities. The aim of these scholarships is to promote international exchange, thus enhance Japan’s relationship with other countries and contribute to human resource development. Every year, two or three Zambian students are awarded scholarships to study in Japan. After completing studies in Japan, they are playing important roles in the development of Zambia in various areas.

It is hoped that the vitalization of the Japan Scholars and closer networks among the members will further broaden and strengthen the relationship between Japan and Zambia.
