Central Asia and Caucasus Region
PREX was first commissioned to run training programs for Central Asia from fiscal 1996. The Marketing Seminar for Understanding the Central Asian Market Economy was implemented until 2004, during which time 81 people took part. From 2002, people who have completed seminars of the local Japan Center Business Course were accepted for the Corporate Course Seminar. From fiscal 2006, the JICA Strengthening of Economic Organizations Seminar, which is aimed at the development of private organizations in Central Asia, has been implemented continually. In March 2010, through JICA Follow-up Activities, PREX staff visited local areas in order to learn about the activities by participants who have returned home.
