[Overview of the Kakehashi Project, an exchange program to promote understanding of Japan]
The “Kakehashi Project” is a project promoted by the Japanese government (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) to invite and dispatch human resources who have the ability to communicate to the outside world and will lead the future (including online exchanges) between Japan and the North American region. Yes, JICE is entrusted with program planning and operation. Through people-to-people exchanges, we are promoting understanding of Japan in terms of its politics, economy, society, culture, history, and foreign policy, as well as cultivating and discovering future pro-Japanese and Japan-savvy groups. In addition, by having participants actively communicate about Japan’s diplomatic stance and attractiveness, the aim is to strengthen the dissemination of information about Japan to the outside world and to expand Japan’s diplomatic base.
