The Association for Overseas Technical Scholarship (AOTS) was established in 1959 with the support of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (which is the present Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) as the first cooperation organization on a private basis in Japan. Its main purpose was to promote international economic cooperation and enhance mutual economic development and friendly relations between those countries and Japan. AOTS & JODC were merged to form HIDA in 2012.

AOTS/HIDA Alumni Societies/Associations

When participants of AOTS/HIDA training programs return to their home counties after studying in Japan, they join their local AOTS/HIDA Alumni Society and dedicate themselves to the economic and industrial development of their respective countries and the enhancement of friendly relations with Japan and other countries. Over 70 Alumni Societies in 43 countries have been established, and some new Societies are under preparation in addition to the existing ones.

The AOTS/HIDA Alumni Societies are

Non-profit private organizations, voluntarily founded in various parts of the world, by the participants of AOTS/HIDA training programs with the shared experience of training in Japan 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. AAAWI is a very successful example of such a Society.

The Overseas Human Resources and Industry Development Association (HIDA)

The Overseas Human Resources and Industry Development Association (HIDA) is an organization for human resources development in developing countries to promote technical cooperation through training, experts dispatch and other programs.

Through those programs, we aim at contributing to the mutual economic growth of developing countries and Japan as well as enhancing friendly relations between those countries.
