African Business Education students visited Toshiba headquarter in Tokyo
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.
