Japanese government is going to hold Japan's Information Technology Engineers Examination (ITEE) in Bangladesh to facilitate the local IT students and professionals to
take part in the ITEE.
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) sources said that this facility would create job opportunities for Bangladeshi IT professionals in Japan as well as would help the country implement its digital Bangladesh programme.
The ITEE is a national standardized examination of Japan for their IT professionals, attended by five to six lakh IT students every year. In Japan, every IT student must pass the ITEE examination to get an ICT related job.
As first step of initiating holding of ITEE here, JICA with the help of Science and ICT Ministry will hold a trial test of 'ITEE' in the capital on October 30.
JICA will give awards to six participants who will score highest numbers in the trial test and the person who will become first among them would visit Japan under the sponsorship of Japanese government, JICA Representative Takashi Ikeda said.
