 THE government of Japan has invited 24 students and one supervisor from the University of Papua New Guinea to visit the country from June 8 to 22.

It is under JENSEYS 2.0 programme (Japan-East Network of Exchange for Students and Youths), which targets 14 Pacific Island countries.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill visited Japan in March and met Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The programme is to promote people-to-people exchange and build closer relations between Japan and Pacific Island countries. 

UPNG students will exchange their views and culture and strengthen the good relationship between Japan and Papua New Guinea.

They will tour Tokyo, visit historical and industrial sites, local communities and exchange programmes with schools.
