“They are making great strides in supporting the continent when it comes to skills development. They have invited or called for a number of young people around the continent to come and be trained here in Japan. We will be sending 49,” he said.
The Deputy President this week led a high-level government and business delegation to the country to promote strategic political and economic relations between the two nations.
During his visit he met with young people who are being trained in master’s degrees in engineering, logistics, marine technology and a number of other technologies.
“When we met these young people we saw the future of our country, we saw young people who are acquiring great skills who are ready to come back to make a contribution to our country,” said Deputy President Ramaphosa. He said South Africa has asked Japan to extend this to the training of artisans.
“They are going to look at our proposal where we can send high level artisans who are willing to be trained to come and be trained in Japanese companies and go back home,” he said, adding that he believed through the visit opportunities have been opened for South African youth.– SAnews.gov.za
