PREX to help JICA train Indonesian traders

The Pacific Resource Exchange Center (PREX) recently signed an agreement with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to help train Indonesian personnel in trading affairs.PREX will act as the domestic secretariat of JICA's "trade sector human resources development project."This is the first time JICA has undertaken a project with a secretariat in Kansai.
Under the contract, which runs from December 15 until the end of next March, PREX will assist JICA in collecting information,preparing for the project and offering advice in relation to dispatching a long-term study mission to Indonesia.
Indonesia has asked JICA to arrange to obtain PREX's cooperation in developing human resources at Indonesia's small and medium companies because PREX itself is based in Osaka which is home to many dynamic small and medium firms.
