The participants will visit Komatsu city, which is located in Ishikawa prefecture and signed MOU of friendship and cooperation with Siem Reap province in 2016. During their visit to Komatsu city, they will exchange Japanese university students and make some group presentation based on their presentation in the above-mentioned Competition. They will also pay a courtesy call on Mayor of Komatsu city and experience Japanese culture. The detailed schedule is attached herewith.

The JENESYS aims to promote mutual trust and understanding among the people of Japan and other participating countries and to build a basis for future friendship and cooperation. Through the program, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has invited more than 2,000 Cambodian youths since 2007.

It is expected that the participants will deepen their understanding of Japan and after coming back, share their experience widely with Cambodian people.
