The Government of Japan has agreed to give 287 million rupees for the implementation of the second phase of Human Resources Development Scholarship Programme. The objective of this programme is to support human resources development by giving opportunities for Government Officials to undergo Masters Degree Programmes at higher educational institutions in Japan. The programme will also assist to provide higher contribution from the public officers for the development of social and economic sectors of the country and to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the two countries. An exchange of notes between the two Governments and a grant agreement between Sri Lanka and JICA for the implementation of the Human Resources Development Programme were signed at the Finance Ministry. Finance Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundara and Japan’s Ambassador Kunio Takahashi inked these relevant documents.
