“Environmental Management Technology in Chemical Industries, Fiscal Year 2008” Training came to an end.

The purpose of this training was to promote chemical industries and environmental conservation in developing countries by introducing the training participants to the latest technology trends of the chemical industry and the know-how of environmental management technology starting with the petrochemical industry so that they could acquire the concept of making the economy and the environment compatible. The training was held from June 2 to July 19, 2008, for Inspectors and planning officers of central and local governments, and managers and engineers of corporations. Also the conditions around the chemical industry and latest issues were addressed during the training, including introduction of information of how Japan and other countries are grappling with international agreements concerning safe management of chemicals. By increasing the participants’ understanding of these issues, the training aimed to contribute to the solution to environmental problems in the participants’ countries. The training participants formulated action plans for implementing environmental management technology utilizing the methods they learned during the training, and were able to take these plans back to their countries.
Four countries in total; Saudi Arabia and Tunisia from the Islamic world, and India and Vietnam from Asia, participated in the group-style training. Though it was a small group, the Q&A session at training lecture was lively, and the participants were able to exchange information on the situation of system and environmental management technology in their respective countries. Friendship among the participants grew during their 45 days of living together. The information network formed during this period will be beneficial to the participants for conducting business in the future.
The participants also took advantage of home visit and home stay programs in Japanese homes on the weekends, enabling them to deepen their understanding of Japan by directly experiencing its daily life and culture. They had additional opportunities to observe Japanese traditional culture through touring Sensoji Temple in Tokyo, Kurashiki and Kyoto.
Thanks to the lectures, tours, home visits and home stays, and the many people who cooperated therein, the training participants left ICETT filled with good memories on July 18. We would like to use this opportunity to show our appreciation.
