Interview with Norihiko Yoshioka, Director General of The Japan Foundation, Bangkok
(1) Arts & Cultural exchange involving different forms of projects which promote cultural exchange between Thai and Japanese individuals. We provide an opportunity for people to co-create projects relating to culture through art, music, drama, dance and film.
(3) Japanese Language Education – We deliver a range of opportunities and support yearly including the dispatch of 85 Japanese teaching assistants (NIHONGO Partners) to public junior/high schools in Thailand as well as offering training to Thai Japanese-language teachers.
“This year we will continue to strengthen learning, support and understanding between Japan and Thailand through the Asian cultural exchange; the ‘WA Project’: Toward Interactive Asia through ‘Fusion and Harmony.’ Japan and Thailand have a healthy relationship with strong and developing economic ties. This brings great potential to learn, enhance and develop the cultural understanding which many Thai and Japanese people have yet to fully discover.”
