1. Young Asian Trainees Achieve Remote Sensing Training

Young Asian trainees visited Japan and achieved a remote sensing
training program. The trainees were invited through the Japan-Asia
Youth Exchange Program in Science (SAKURA Exchange Program in Science)
run by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). 15 trainees from
Cambodia, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Lao PDR, Thailand,
Singapore, Taiwan and Philippines spent 10 days in Japan and enjoyed
Japanese culture and life style as well.
