Cooperation in Returnee Events

JITCO supports networking between returnees and exposure of the Industrial Training and Internship Program by organizing a symposium amongst other activities. In November 2005, the State Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs requested JITCO send employees to attend the Round-Table Discussion Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Sending Trainees Program. The symposium was sponsored by the Chinese Foreign Applied Sciences Association, which is the certified sending organization, and the Science and Technology Association of China, which is its governing organization.

In June 2006, JITCO supported the Returnees Summit, sponsored by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, Department of Labour and Employment, Philippines (TESDA). The gathering was held over two days and included the commencement of a new group, the Returnees Reunion Association, a business start-up seminar and also a symposium centered on returnees experiences.

JITCO will continue to support networking between returnees and to cooperate with sending governments by incorporating their requests.
