Overview of the AOTS Alumni Societies

The AOTS Alumni Societies are non-profit private organizations voluntarily founded in various parts of the world by the participants of AOTS (including HIDA) training programs with the shared experience of training in Japan. Currently 71 Alumni Societies in 43 countries have been established, and are dedicated to the economic and industrial development of their own countries and to the enhancement of friendly relations with Japan and other countries through human resources development.

Today, the international community is expecting more of Japanese technical cooperation, and AOTS, as one of the largest private technical cooperation organizations in Japan, has to increase its organizational effectiveness by making the best use of its resources, as well as by developing and evaluating its programs consistently to meet the real needs of the developing countries.

The AOTS Alumni Societies are playing a valuable role in AOTS training programs as important local partners. AOTS cooperates with AOTS Alumni Society activities that meet the objectives of AOTS programs and contribute to heightening the recognition and development of AOTS activities. AOTS provides active support to the foundation of new AOTS Alumni Societies by AOTS (including HIDA) ex-participants. AOTS also encourages AOTS Alumni Societies in the same country to form National Federations to promote mutual cooperation.
