The date of arrival for 28 overseas participants of the 2021 ARI Rural Leaders Training Program has not yet been decided due to the suspension of visa issuance procedures for Japan due to COVID-19.
However, three Japanese participants have joined ARI this year. We are delighted to welcome them to ARI and will hold an Opening Ceremony on Friday 9 April. We regret to inform you that due to COVID-19, we will not be able to welcome any guests from outside this year.
The ceremony will be streamed live on ARI’s official Facebook page, so please join us there, or follow it on your news feed after the ceremony.
The 49th Opening Ceremony will be held at the following date and time:
