The  Georgian representatives  of  JICA (Japan International Cooperation) and “Armenian Association of Japanese Alumni”  NGO were hosted  at ASUE International Programs’ Center  today to organize  a regional  workshop  of JICA "Promoting Partnership for Development" strategy and its implementation in Armenia and Georgia.

JICA aims to be a good partner for developing countries, accurately grasping their changing needs through a focus on the field and promoting their own self-help efforts swiftly and effectively through a focus on results. We will also promote public-private partnerships, pooling the experience, technologies, and resources of local governments, universities, nongovernmental organizations, and other actors. Furthermore, to fulfill our responsibilities as one of the largest donor organizations in the world with more than 40 years of experience, we will strengthen partnerships with international organizations and other donor institutions, leading the creation of a broad framework for development assistance in a global community that is seeing growing numbers of players in the international cooperation field and increasingly diverse forms of aid to developing countries.

“The  main  goal  of  this  workshop  is  to  get  acquainted  with the  members  of  Alumni Association  in Georgia (as  the  staff  has  been  changed),   the  strategies of  implementing  JICA program  in Armenia  and Georgia. We  have  three  meetings  in a  year (in different countries). Our  NGO has been  founded in 1998,  supported Armenian Alumni’s  trainings  in Japan”;  said  the  Director  of  “Armenian Association of Japanese Alumni” NGO  Levon  Movsisyan.

ASUE  Vice-Rector  Gagik Vardanyan highlighted the  importance  of  organizing  international  workshop  at  our  University, as  ASUE  has wide perspectives  to  cooperate with  JICA.
