The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan has awarded the Foreign Minister’s Commendation for FY 2022 to the Japanese Universities Alumni Association, Nepal (JUAAN). 

According to a statement issued by the Embassy of Japan, the organization has contributed to supporting Nepali students’ study in Japan and building a network after their return, deepening understanding of Japan in Nepal through regular seminars on Japanese studies and continuing to share knowledge and skills among its members for the development of Nepal, through regular study meetings (named Benkyokai) and participation in JICA. In recognition of these significant contributions JUAAN has been selected to be the recipient of the Foreign Minister's Commendation for FY2022. 

The Foreign Minister’s Commendations have been awarded to individuals and groups with outstanding achievements in international fields in order to acknowledge their contributions to the promotion of friendship between Japan and other countries and areas. The Commendations also aim to promote understanding and support from the Japanese public regarding the activities of the recipients. 

This year marks the 120th anniversary of the year when the first eight Nepali students went to Japan for their study.
