2023 MEXT scholarship students sending-off ceremony

With students
On 31 March (Fri), Ambassador Watanabe hosted a send-off party at the Ambassador's residence for the students who were selected for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) scholarship programme for fiscal year 2023. Five (5) graduate students and one (1) specialised training student will start their studies in Japan in April for the next 2 to 3 years. Ambassador Watanabe expressed his hope that those who study in Japan will actively engage as a bridge between the two countries in the development of PNG after their return to Japan.
