Government Will Pay Half IT Courses

Date Posted: 2000-09-29

In order to boost the use of computers and internet among the Japanese, officials at the Ministry of Transportation announced a plan for the government to pay half of any computer and information technology related courses any citizen would take. The ministry will create an official student card where accredited schools would mark courses the card holder would take, for which he or she would then be compensated. The reimbursement would be paid through municipal offices.

The Japanese government of Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori has placed the development of IT related businesses as the first priority for the nation with the aim of catching up with the U.S. in five years. The government is also studying ways to reduce the cost of being on-line and taking steps to improve infrastructure. But the obstacles are also high, the highest being the lack of teachers and specialists who could teach the courses to the public at large.
