The training program was completed successfully although the heaviest snowfall in 20 years hit entire Japan during their stay. They enjoyed not only joining training program but also Japanese culture and seasons because it was the first time for them to see the snow. We are deeply grateful for support from Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA), each accepting company and school, and all the members who fully cooperated with this training program.
