It is to cultivate Japanese people well-acquainted with these three countries, as well as Burmese, Lao and Cambodian people with a strong command of Japanese and who understand Japanese society who will form a bridge between these nations and Japan. In addition, it will train human resources in Japanese and Japanese language education in Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia.
