Tokyo Gas Southeast Asia Japanese Language Education Support Program
The Tokyo Gas Southeast Asia Japanese Language Education Support program is operated through activities of language programs organized by the Japan Foundation Overseas.
Tokyo Gas seeks to expand its midstream and downstream operations in Southeast Asia in the years ahead. Also, by nurturing the younger generation with an interest in Japan, we intend to contribute to the development of sustainable societies, strengthen our ties with local communities, and develop our profile as a business group that can be trusted and counted upon.
In Vietnam, we have been supporting Japanese language education since April 2017 at the Ba Ria-Vung Tau University in Vung Tau City, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. In the Faculty of Oriental Studies, School of Languages-Cultures-International Relations, we operate a program for students who are majoring in Japanese language. We also conduct classes for second- and third-year students, offering guidance for participants in speech contests and providing assistance on graduation theses. And we support Japanese language education for students in science and engineering courses.

In Thailand, we conducted lectures for three hours on March 24, 2017 for about 40 students taking Japanese language courses at Kohn Kaen University in the northeast region. The program was attended by graduate students in science and technology courses and undergraduates in the engineering and environmental science departments. The lectures introduced the overseas business of Tokyo Gas while also explaining the application of basic technology and future outlook for a hydrogen-based society and other developments.
