Japan’s Ambassador in India Kenji Hiramatsu said on Wednesday that Japan would focus on enhancing collaboration in engineering, commerce, ocean studies, and law.

Graduates taking up Japanese language studies will have more job opportunities in Japan, he added. Since Jawaharlal Nehru University included Japanese language in its curriculum, students from the university have been getting plenty of job opportunities in Japan.

Mr. Hiramatsu was participating in an interactive session with faculty members of Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat). He said his country would provide all support to maximise potential in IT, tourism and management sectors.

He also suggested that a Japanese study centre be opened in Cusat.

Projects will be developed for education, commerce and trade sectors in Kerala, said Mr. Hiramatsu.

The meeting was presided over by Vice Chancellor R. Sasidharan. IRAI Director K.K. Raju and Registrar Dr. David Peter were among those who spoke. Japanese Embassy officials were present.
