“Middle East and North Africa Group Invitation Program”

The Japan Foundation invited a number of promising young leaders to visit Japan, in order to become familiar with the cultures and concepts of value in Japan and exchange their perspectives with other participants from Arab nations and Japan through workshops, lectures, group dialogues, public panel discussions and field trips to provincial cities under certain themes, hence forming a bridge between Japan and other Arab countries for stronger ties.
