A MEMORANDUM of understanding (MOU) has been signed between the Organisation for Industrial, Spiritual and Cultural Advancement, International Japan (OISCA) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports to boost the work undertaken by government.

Signing the MOU on behalf of the Ministry of Youth and Sports was Fiji's Ambassador to Japan Isikeli Mataitoga and representing OISCA was the president for OISCA International, Dr Hoshiko Nakano.

The MOU was entered into a spirit of mutual friendship and understanding to promote community development as an integral part of the socio-economic well-being of the people of Fiji.

Under the MOU, the OISCA will organise for experts to provide technical and other educational opportunities.

It also ensures that OISCA will engage experts to organise courses and training such as organic farming, farm management and community development skills to empower rural youths.

The agreement signed is another five years of commitment by OISCA where they are ready to dispatch a maximum of five experts according to the need of the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

OISCA will also provide opportunities for trainees from Fiji who will later be assessed to undertake leadership studies in Japan.

According to the OISCA International website, OISCA-Fiji has been in the country for more than 20 years.

During this time they have been involved in agro-forestry development, mangrove reforestation, coral reef restoration and the children's forest program.
