The Ja­panese govern­ment has al­lo­cated a gra­tu­itous grant to Uzbek­istan for $ 2.3 mil­lion in the frame­work of the project to pro­vide schol­ar­ships for train­ing.

Ex­change notes on this were signed in Tashkent by the Ja­panese Am­bas­sador to Uzbek­istan Nobuaki Ito and Chair­man of Uzbek­istan’s State Com­mit­tee for In­vest­ments Azim Ahmed­khad­jayev.

The as­signed funds will be spent on re­cruit­ment of stu­dents, who will be trained in the lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties of Ja­pan in 2018. Among them there will be 15 masters and two doc­toral stu­dents.

The re­al­iza­tion of this project, the Em­bassy of Ja­pan is con­vinced, is to al­low spe­cial­ists re­spon­si­ble for the fu­ture of Uzbek­istan to ac­quire pro­fes­sional knowl­edge and ap­ply them for the de­vel­op­ment of the econ­omy and so­ci­ety of the repub­lic, to deepen the un­der­stand­ing of the Land of the Ris­ing Sun, and to con­trib­ute to the ad­vance­ment of friendly re­la­tions between the two states.

Uzbek­istan and Ja­pan have long been co­op­er­at­ing in the train­ing of man­age­rial staff in var­i­ous for­mats. Dur­ing the visit of the Ja­panese Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe to Tashkent in Oc­to­ber 2015, the par­ties reached agree­ment in prin­ci­ple in this area.

A joint project that pro­vides young govern­ment em­ploy­ees from Uzbek­istan with the nec­es­sary fund­ing to ob­tain a master’s or doc­toral de­gree in Ja­panese uni­ver­si­ties was launched in 1999. Ever since, about 300 Uzbek peo­ple have stud­ied in Ja­pan.
