JICA official visits JKUAT


Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Chief Representative in Kenya Kato Masaaki was in JKUAT Tuesday August 30, 2011 to discuss possible collaboration between JKUAT and Egypt –Japan University of Science and Technology (E-Just), a graduate school based in Alexandria, Egypt that specializes in various engineering disciplines. During the talks with Prof. Romanus Odhiambo, JKUAT Acting Vice Chancellor, the two officials agreed on the need to explore possible ways in which the two universities with a long history with JICA could work together to foster development in Africa.

JKUAT, an institution with a long history with JICA, was establishment in 1981 as Jomo Kenyatta College of Agriculture and Technology through Japanese government funding and therefore a collaboration between JKUAT and Egypt’s, E-Just, an institution largely supported by the Japanese government to facilitate development programs targeted at Arab and African countries will naturally be of great interest to JICA.
