Waseda-NBTC Training Course 2012

Waseda-NBTC Training Course 2012

This July, we have been delighted to welcomed honorable guests from the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) in Thailand. They traveled overseas to Japan for the special training course with the main topic “ICT Development and Utilization: A Policy Perspective“. It has been the very first training course conducted through the cooperation between Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies (GSAPS), Waseda University and NBTC.

The 5 days intensive training course included lectures regarding ICT and its policy, and technical on-site visits to various corporations. We have all learned so much from the lecture and visits. We would like to express our gratitude to all the professors and guest speakers who have spared their precious time to share their wisdom with us. Also we would like to say thank you to all the organizations who have managed to guide us around and taught us about the ICT development from Japanese organizations’ perspectives. The knowledge and experiences we have gained during these 5 days have been very valuable for ICT development in Thailand.

We have concluded the training course with a group discussion and presentation, where active discussions and ideas sharing have been accomplished. Accordingly, the presentation given by each group have successfully summarized the content of the 5 days training course. Moreover, we were able to compare the differences between ICT development in Japan and Thailand, and raised questions for further implications for Thailand’s ICT development.

Of course, we have also experienced so much of shopping around Tokyo during these 5 days. Especially the Ginza area, which proved to be Thai people’s favorite shopping spot indeed. It seemed like we cannot survive a day without going to Ginza.

The Siam smiles that we have seen from the NBTC guests have been a wonderful evidence showing that they have had a great time in Tokyo and the training course. It was indeed a very
successful collaboration between the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies and NBTC.

Thank you again for joining the training course and we hope to see all of you again next year !
