In a five-day mission, Prof Yoshida Osamu, who works with the Faculty of Law, Graduate School of Social Science and International Economic Cooperation, and Meg Kagawa, Research Fellow of the Graduate School of Social Science, met with the Bangsamoro Transition Commission headed by its Chairman Mohaghre Iqbal; high ranking officials of the Mindanao State University (MSU) – Main Campus in Marawi City; President of the Cotabato City State Polytechnic College (CCSPC); Senior MILF Peace Panel Member Atty. Datu Michael Mastura, Prof Rudy Rodil, a Mindanao historian and former member of the GPH Peace Negotiating, ARMM Governor Mujib Hataman and ARMM Youth Director Anwar Upam, and more than ten Cotabato City – based fellows who had been Hiroshima University through the HIPEC Program of the Hiroshima University and invitation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) – Japan.
Aside from the meetings, lectures on Public Administration and Decentralization: Cases in India and Japan were delivered by Prof Yoshida to the BTC, civil society organizations in cooperation with the Institute of Bangsamoro Studies (IBS), and students of MSU, CCSPC and Sultan Kudarat Islamic Academy.
Yoshida and Kagawa being assisted by the Secretariat of the MILF Coordinating Committee on the Cessation of Hostilities (CCCH) also visited MILF’s Camp Darapanan, the office of the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) and the Bangsamoro Leadership and Management Institute Training Center, which was constructed under the GGP scheme of the Embassy of Japan in Manila.
Prof Yoshida said the mission aims to get proper understanding of the Bangsamoro - issues, situations, people - and the Bangsamoro Government as envisioned in the peace process between the GPH and MILF, and to advocate the project, Hiroshima Peacebuilding Human Resource Development Project for the Bangsamoro Government.
He added the Study Mission in Bangsamoro and Hiroshima Peacebuilding Human Resource Development Project for the Bangsamoro Government are significant endeavors of Hiroshima University and the Hiroshima Prefecture Government pursuant to the program dubbed as Hiroshima for Global Peace.
“Indeed, Japan is strongly to promote peace in global scale, good governance and accountability,” Yoshida said.
The Hiroshima Peacebuilding Human Resource Development Project for the Bangsamoro Government is a two-year (2014 to 2105) project being supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
74 youths of the Bangsamoro will undertake trainings for capacity development in the field of civil service, local/regional development and public administration. 33 of the 74 youth will be selected following agreed procedures in order to go to Hiroshima University.
“Preparing and empowering the youth in the course of civil service and public administration is one important pillar of entrenching good governance and accountability in the Bangsamoro,” stressed Yoshida.
The Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) that works on the drafting of the Bangsamoro Basic Law that shall govern the Bangsamoro is the project partner of Hiroshima University.
BTC Chair and MILF Peace Negotiating Panel, Mohagher Iqbal, expressed the endless gratitude of the Bangsamoro to the Hiroshima University and Prefecture Government, JICA and Japan Prime Minister Shnizo Abe and its people for the continuing strong support for the GPH – MILF peaceprocess, even as he said “this undertaking with Hirshima is so vital and timely, manifesting in many ways the great concern and commitment of the Japan to help achieve peace and progress in this part of the region.”
“Kindly accept our gratitude and appreciation for the unfaltering support of Japan for the cause of peace, unity and progress in the Bangsamoro,” Iqbal said.
