An article on policies co-sponsored by CBC published in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun
The government has recently set the goal to double, by 2020, the number of Japanese students overseas to 120.000 people, and recently has established a new scholarship system to study abroad, called "Tobitate! Studying abroad JAPAN". The Japan Foreign Trade Council, whose core members are major trading companies, has entirely agreed with the spirit of such a system, aiming for a global human resource development in the future. Also CBC, being a member of the Council, is financially supporting and co-sponsoring the project.
