Pacific & Caribbean Journalist Fellowship 2016

Pacific & Caribbean Journalist Fellowship 2016

The Association for Promotion of International Cooperation (APIC) in collaboration with the Foreign Press Center Japan (FPCJ), invited six journalists from Pacific island and Caribbean nations to Japan. During their one week visit, they had chances to see firsthand the progressive approach Japan has been taking regarding environmental protection and disaster prevention with their own eyes. They traveled to many other areas across Japan for briefings related to each region, including Ishinomaki and Sendai, they communicated these briefings to their local media organizations in their home countries, throughout the visit.

 On the last day of their official business, a group of 50 people, which included the journalists alongside other prominent figures, joined together at the Tokyo Club for a farewell dinner. APIC president Mr. Peter Sato, FPCJ director Mr. Kiyotaka Akasaka, and FPCJ board of trustee member Mr. Hatsuhisa Takashima each gave a brief speech, and the six participating journalists gave a short presentation on their impressions of Japan during their one week stay.

 Each journalist drafted up articles on their stay in Japan to be published by their home media. One of the participating journalists, Mr. Amitabh Sharma, who is from Jamaica, wrote an article about trash, based on his visit to Corelex San-Ei Co., LTD, which is a major bathroom tissue manufacturer in Japan.
