30th An­niver­sary of the diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween Ja­pan and Bhutan

Bhutan Times - - Home -

This year, 2016, marks the 30th an­niver­sary of the es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween and Ja­pan and the King­dom of Bhutan.

On this oc­ca­sion, var­i­ous com­mem­o­rat­ing events are be­ing held in both coun­tries. It is ex­pected that the friendly re­la­tion­ship be­tween the two coun­tries will be fur­ther strength­ened through such events so that the mu­tual ex­changes at var­i­ous lev­els and fields will be fur­ther deep­ened.

A short-term ex­change pro­gramme be­tween SEISA Univer­sity, Ja­pan and Royal Thim­phu Col­lege, Bhutan has been of­fi­cially rec­og­nized as one of the com­mem­o­ra­tive events cel­e­brat­ing the 30th an­niver- sary of the es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween Ja­pan and king­dom of Bhutan.

The SEISA-RTC stu­dent ex­change pro­gramme is a part of the aca­demic part­ner­ship be­tween the Royal Thim­phu Col­lege and SEISA Univer­sity, Ja­pan. Most re­cently, 10 RTC stu­dents ac­com­pa­nied by a fac­ulty mem­ber were in Ja­pan on a 10-day cul­tural ex­change pro­gramme from Jan­uary 31st- Fe­bru­ary 9th, 2016. The cul­tural tour pro­vided the stu­dents with op­por­tu­ni­ties to at­tend ses­sions rang­ing from Ja­panese tra­di­tions to some of the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ments.

The SEISA- RTC MoU was signed in 2010, and since then 52 RTC stu­dents had the op­por­tu­nity to visit and learn about Ja­pan ev­ery year.

Sim­i­larly, 29 SEISA stu­dents have thus far vis­ited RTC. RTC will be fur­ther host­ing 12 stu­dents and a fac­ulty mem­ber of SEISA this March as a part of the ex­change pro­gramme and in com­mem­o­rat­ing of the 30th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions.
