AP govt to introduce Japanese language courses in 3 varsities
With the Japan government agencies and private companies showing interest in investing in Andhra Pradesh and joining the development of the state capital, Japanese language courses are being introduced in three major universities in the state.

The state government has decided to introduce Japanese language courses in the three oldest and prestigious universities in the state -- Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur and Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati.

"It will provide jobs to students, in the sense, Japanese investors are showing interest in Amaravati (upcoming capital) construction as well as bringing in investments in manufacturing and infrastructure," Parakala Prabhakar, Advisor (Communications) to Andhra Pradesh government, told PTI here today.

"So, in order to work for the Japanese firms (they will need) Japanese language, Japanese interpreters, Telugu to Japanese or English to Japanese, there will be lot of demand for Japanese language skills in the near future," he said.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu visited Japan twice since he assumed office one year ago to woo Japanese investors and to seek Japan's cooperation in developing infrastructure and the capital city.

The state government decided to have a Japanese desk in AP and has selected a person, fluent in Japanese, to liaise with the Japanese agencies, Prabhakar, who was part of Naidus delegation to Japan, said.
