Bangladesh and Japan have signed a new agreement for human resource development scholarship.

Japanese Ambassador to Bangladesh IWAMA Kiminor and Economic Relations Division Secretary Md Shahriar Kader Siddiky signed the exchange of notes on the Japanese aid titled “Project for Human Resource Development Scholarship” which would give up to $3 million in grants, said a press release.

Since its inception in 2002, 507 Bangladeshi officials as master’s degree students and 18 officials as doctoral degree students have studied in Japan under the JDS scheme. 

In the Japanese Fiscal Year 2024, Bangladesh ranked 2nd in the world in terms of the number of JDS fellows.

“Bangladesh is aiming at elevating to the developed countries in less than 20 years. In order to achieve this goal, the role of government officials is essential. I do believe that the support of our government to the government officials in Bangladesh has substantially contributed to the development of this country since 2002. I hope that the dispatch of young officials through our grant aid will accelerate the development of Bangladesh for another 20 years.” said Ambassador IWAMA.
