What is "Japan ASIA Youth Conference"?
"Japan ASIA Youth Conference" is the conference for thinking the policy of international students. It is planned and operated once a year by the Japan Association for Promotion of Internationalization (JAPI).
Based on the results of over 1,300 international students' questionnaire survey, the conference will pose problems regarding recruiting international students and their living in Japan, and suggest improvement measures.
Continuing from last year, the student leaders from JAYC said the results of their survey. And a number of people attended, including the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the university professor, the private corporate representative, etc., and discussed the current situation of international students.
