The Initiatives Center at the Mohammed bin Salman Foundation, "MiSK Foundation", and Tokyo University signed in Tokyo on Friday a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish the Mohammed bin Salman Center for Future Science and Technology, reported the Saudi Press Agency.


The MoU was signed in the presence of President of the University of Tokyo Dr. Makoto Gonokami, Chairman of the Board of Directors of MiSK Initiatives Center Badr Al-Asaker and Saudi Ambassador to Japan Naif Al-Fhadi.


Al-Asaker said the MoU aims to train about 60 Saudi male and female youths at the University of Tokyo in the fields of renewable and nuclear energy in cooperation with experts from the industrial and research sector in Japan, in addition to field visits to factories and research centers.


The deal is an extension of the existing partnership between MiSK Foundation and the University of Tokyo, he added.


For his part, Gonokami said setting up the Center is a wonderful opportunity to enhance and deepen cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Japan.


“We will proceed in developing our partnerships to achieve the Saudi-Japanese vision 2030,” he stressed.
