The Japanese government is allocating substantial funds to train information technology (IT) professionals in developing Asian countries. Association for Overseas Technical Scholarship (AOTS) is one such non-profit organization that promotes technical cooperation in the industrialization of developing countries. It is supported by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry that has been offering free IT workshops in such countries as Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines. These workshops aim to have foreign IT engineers pass the Japanese IT Standards Examination (Jitse).
