Theme: Culture Exchange (Cheerleading)
Fifteen Japanese university students are scheduled to visit Cambodia from February 18th to 26th as part of the Japan’s Friendship Ties Programs "JENESYS 2019" promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
The group will visit the Chroy Changwar Bridge which was reconstructed by Japanese Grant Aid to learn Japan’s international contribution. Also, they will observe Phnom Penh City, Royal Palace, National Museum, Tuol Sleng Museum, and Wat Phnom to deepen their understanding of culture, society and history of Cambodia. Furthermore, they will have joint training with students of Norton University and visit the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports, and try to appeal Japan’s attractiveness through the communication with people in Cambodia. Through this program, we hope the participants proactively share the appeals of Japan and other information after returning to Japan and it ties the relationships between Japan and Cambodia.
