As far as industrial development is concerned, it has been observed that the lack of modern technology has been a major issue relating to the industrial development of Sri Lanka when comparing with the other developing countries in the world. It is proud to see the achievements TSUKUBA Technical Promotions has gained so far by sending technical trainees to a developed country such as Japan for the most valuable technical training which could not be obtained in Sri Lanka.
Making use of modern technology for the industrial development of Sri Lanka has become its primary objective which has already been fulfilled along with sending technical trainees to Japan. Through this program, the technical trainees who are sent have been able to gain considerable knowledge with the training and be employed in the companies in Japan for a period of five (05) years. After equipping with the knowledge and the experience, they are able to return to Sri Lanka and provide their valuable contribution towards economic development while developing their careers.
The technical trainees are sent to many different fields such as computer technology, electronics, agriculture, metal, etc. More than 170 trainees have completed their training and returned back to Sri Lanka up to now.
