African Business Education students visited Toshiba headquarter in
In August 2018 Toshiba welcomed three visitors from Africa at our
headquarter in Tokyo as part of African Business Education (ABE)
Initiative’s short term internship. ABE initiative is Japanese
governmental scholarship programme for African students to go to
Japan to study for master degrees and experience internship.
During their two weeks programme students from Kenya and Tanzania
had a close look at Toshiba’s operation at Toshiba Corporation,
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation, Toshiba Plant
Systems & Services Corporation and various factories. Furthermore
they had opportunity to meet with Toshiba’s president and COO
Satoshi Tsunakawa and also held presentation and workshop about how
Toshiba to develop business in their home countries.
It was such a rare opportunity for us to host African students in
Japan and as Toshiba Group we would like to continue supporting ABE
initiative students in the future.
