JFTC is sponsoring JFTC Essay Competition 2011 to encourage students, young researchers and businesspeople to express their opinions on matters of national and international importance.
One Grand Prize of 1,000,000 yen and three Prizes for Excellence of 200,000 yen each will be awarded. In addition, the awardwinners from abroad will be provided with a round trip airticket to Tokyo, Japan to attend the award ceremony to be held on January 6, 2012.
Essay Topic: “Vision for a New Japan after 3.11”The earthquake and tsunami that devastated the northeastern region of Japan on March 11, 2011 had an impact around the world of the kind that could change the course of human civilization. Now, in the aftermath, Japan is turning to the task of rebuilding the devastated region. But merely restoring the region to its previous state would fail to address the lessons to be learned from the disaster.What kind of philosophy, vision and values should be adopted in pursuit of a New Japan, and what innovative measures are needed to realize a recovery that not only serves Japan but also contributes to the world?
Based on the issues outlined above, we invite participants to write freely on their vision for a New Japan.

    This competition is quite appealing and is a great opportunity for people around the globe to express themselves and at the time contribute to the recovery of Japan from the 11/03 earthquake. Thus, all Cambodians please help enthusiastically participate in the competition and count our voices in the global arena. Cheers for your best…
