Qatar International Petroleum Marketing Company, Tasweeq, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Japan Cooperation Center, Petroleum (JCCP) to exchange training and development programmes in oil and gas sector.
The JCCP is a non-profit organisation established in 1981 after two oil crises in the 70s to promote economic cooperation between Japan and oil-producing countries, a press statement said on Thursday.
The main purpose of the MoU is to enhance cooperation between Tasweeq and JCCP on matters related to training and development.
The specific objective is to have access to the various technical and non-technical courses organised by JCCP, exposing participants of both parties to best practices and expertise.
One major component of the agreement is the implementation of the employee exchange practice, where Tasweeq for the first time will receive Japanese employees at its headquarters next year. This will be a good opportunity to introduce them to Tasweeq’s various activities and acquaint them to the Qatari culture. The MoU was singed on November 19 between CEO of Tasweeq, Saad Al Kuwari, and Executive Director of JCCP, Masataka Sase, at Tasweeq headquarters in the presence of representatives from both companies.
Al Kuwari said, “We believe this MoU will allow the Japanese employees to be familiar with the vital role Tasweeq plays in marketing Qatar’s oil and petroleum products”.
Sase added: “We are very excited about this MoU and the mutual benefits for both our companies. With this, we would like to further strengthen the relationship between Qatar and Japan and thus build a strong foundation between Tasweeq and JCCP.”
JCCP has developed two programmes, the ‘Training Programme’ and the ‘Joint Technical Cooperation Programme’.
In terms of the Training Programme, JCCP received more than 21,000 participants in Japan from overseas and dispatched more than 5,000 Japanese experts to oil producing countries.
They also received almost 600 persons from Qatar and have sent about 150 Japanese experts to Qatar.
