The AOTS Alumni Societies are non-profit private organizations voluntarily founded in various parts of the world by the participants of AOTS(previous HIDA) training programs with the shared experience of training in Japan. Currently 71 Alumni Societies in 43 countries have been established, and are dedicated to the economic and industrial development of their own countries and to the enhancement of friendly relations with Japan and other countries through human resources development.
Today, the international community is expecting more of Japanese technical cooperation, and AOTS, as one of the largest private technical cooperation organizations in Japan, has to increase its organizational effectiveness by making the best use of its resources, as well as by developing and evaluating its programs consistently to meet the real needs of the developing countries.
