The METI Government of Japan Internship Program is seeking 120 young nationals from developing countries. The internship duration is for 3 months internship in Japan. Although the number of Japanese companies expanding overseas business has increased in recent years, due to the shrinkage of the domestic market, the shortage of “global talent” who is responsible for overseas development. Especially, for Small-and Medium-Sized Enterprises, has become a challenge.

Moreover, Utilizing highly skilled foreign professionals, such as for participation in overseas expansion or creation of innovation with a new viewpoint might be attributed to strengthening the competitiveness of Japanese companies. However, it has not advanced, especially in Small-and-Medium-Sized companies. Which is due to their lack of experience in working with foreign talent or the network.

Furthermore, This program aims for people from developing countries to get a great opportunity. It enables them to learn overseas business strategies in Japanese businesses. Also, to acquire the skills and expertise from Japanese companies.
