Training for Government Officials of Aceh Tengah in Kochi & Tokyo

We supported the short-term training for government officials of Aceh Tengah in Japan, 5-9 November 2019. This is a part of JICA Grass-root Cooperation Project on orange resource development between Ochi town in Kochi prefecture and Aceh Tengah district.

They learned support policies by local government to develop the 6th industrialization (integration of cultivation-processing-marketing) by private sector this time. Two trainees sent from Aceh Tengah in Ochi town taught how to pick orange to those government officials. Local TV shot the scene.

We hope this short-term training make some contribution to develop the integration of cultivation-processing-marketing of orange resource in Aceh Tengah.
