Pato farewells Eco-Tech Training student


Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Rimbink Pato farewelled a student recipient of OISCA Eco-Tech Training Centre, a non-governmental organisation in partnership with the Japanese government dedicated to promote international cooperation.
Winner Francis Jacob, 26, from Tsak in Wapenamanda, Enga, was one of the six students who were selected to study under the OISCA Eco-Tech Japanese scholarship in Kokopo, East New Britain.
“I wanted to make use of the opportunity that was granted to me and with passion and perseverance,” he said. “I worked hard to score good grades and impress the sponsors and am waiting for the opportunity to further study in Japan. Many are called but few are chosen.
“I am grateful to OISCA Japanese government and Wapenamanda district administration for this opportunity of a life time.”
Pato expressed gratitude to the government of Japan through its embassy for the tremendous assistance they had given to the People of PNG over past years.
“Each year, the government of Japan provides scholarship assistance to students and I wish to thank them for its continuous support,” he said.
