Hosting of participants in the (ABE) Initiative

On Saturday 30 July 2022, Ambassador Ngonyama hosted participants in the African Business Education (ABE) Initiative for Youth at the Official Residence.
The ABE Initiative was created in 2013 by the late Prime Minister ABE Shinzo, providing young people from across Africa with opportunities to pursue Master’s degrees at Japanese universities and undertake internships at Japanese enterprises.
The ABE Initiative has since been upgraded to the PhD level. To date, 104 South African students have completed the Abe programme across all fields of study.
