Japan to Build Tech Education Centre in Kayin State

Japan will build a technical education and training school in Myanmar’s southeastern Kayin state in a bid to create youth employment in the conflict-ridden state.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the construction of the centre in Hpa-an, capital of Kayin state, was signed between the Education and Training Department under the Ministry of Border Affairs and Bridge Asia Japan (BAJ).

According to the MoU, the school will offer industrial maintenance, electrical, construction and welding courses to 180 trainees for a year at a cost of $1.5 million.
