Introduction to HIDA

The Overseas Human Resources and Industry Development Association (HIDA) is a human resource development institute that promotes technical cooperation by providing training programs for industrial human resources in, and by dispatching Japanese experts to, developing countries. We at HIDA have committed ourselves to contributing to the promotion of economic development in, and friendship between, Japan and other countries, through our industrial human resources development initiatives. The total number of participants in HIDA training programs in Japan has exceeded 170,000. They have come from about 170 developing countries and regions. Speaking of India, HIDA has invited 11,000 persons from the country to our training programs in Japan. In addition, HIDA has dispatched almost 7, 500 experts to developing countries.

In terms of mutual economic cooperation, Japan and India have actively engaged in dialogues including ministerial meetings to discuss various projects, not to mention the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project. HIDA was referred to as a human resources development organization capable of upgrading personnel skills and promoting investment in India's manufacturing sector, in a recently released Joint Statement on Japan-India Investment Promotion by H.E. Anand Sharma, Minister of Commerce and Industry (India), and H.E. Toshimitsu Motegi Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (Japan). In fact, HIDA is planning to carry out a variety of programs for India’s industrial human resources development in this fiscal year.

Coinciding with the office’s opening, HIDA President will host a ceremonial event on Wednesday 30 October 2013, inviting guests from two governments, the industrial sector and companies in India as well as ex-participants of HIDA training programs.
