Re: Departure of Cambodian JENESYS Delegation

A Cambodian youth delegation of 20 people, consisting of 16 high school students, one government official and 3 teachers, will depart Cambodia on October 27, 2008 for a stay of approximately 10 days in Japan. This is the forth group, from Cambodia to join the JENESYS Programme *(Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths).

During their visit to Japan, students will visit sites related to Japanese politics, economy, and social and cultural affairs, as well as local communities. They will join in with exchange events with Japanese youths and citizens, including homestays, school visits, discussions, seminars, student conferences, etc.
The four JENESYS delegations visit of this year will represent one of the memorable events of the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Cambodia and Japan. The first Cambodian JENESYS delegation of 30 people visited Japan in March, the second delegation of 70 people visited in July, and the third delegation of 40 people visited in September.

Being different from other three delegations, the fourth delegation will join the programme with other 4 Mekong area countries’ delegations (Laos, Myanmar, Thai, Vietnam). 5 countries’ participants will be divided into 4 groups and each group is a mixture of students from 5 countries. The students are expected to
enhance friendship and mutual understanding about their neighboring countries in Japan.

The pre-departure orientation for the fourth Cambodian JENESYS delegation will take place on October 27, 2008 from 9:00 to 11:00 at Sunway Hotel and from 14:00 to 17:00 at Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Center (CJCC).

* The JENESYS Programme is based on a plan announced by Mr. Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan at that time, at the Second East Asia Summit (EAS), held in January 2007. The plan is to implement a 35-billion-yen youth exchange program, inviting about 6,000 young people to Japan, mainly from the EAS member states (ASEAN countries, Australia, China, India, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea) every year for five years, with a view to establishing a basis for Asian solidarity by expanding youth exchange. The JENESYS Programme sees East Asian youths invited to Japan, Japanese youths sent to East Asia, and other exchange activities. The program is expected to deepen mutual understanding among young people, who will assume important roles in the future in each East Asian country.
