Japan proved to be very inspiring for Serbian students and researchers who have signed up with very original ideas for research projects from a number of authorities, including the Japanese literature, martial arts, kitchen, law, economics, political science, diplomacy, education system and philosophy. “JTI has in 2011 launched a program of Sakura scholarships, which for six years has continuously contributed to the development of research in connection with Japan. I am very pleased to see continuous strong interest in this subject and are eagerly waiting for the final phase of this year’s scholarship recipients. I would like to thank JTI for their efforts and I am really confident that this programme will contribute to better understanding and friendship between Japan and Serbia”, said H E Juichi Takahara, the Ambassador of Japan.
