International Business (Kawaijuku Group Educational Asset Export Business)

Background and thoughts on the creation of this project

The Company and Kawaijuku Group possess an abundance of educational content, expertise, and methods, and many of these educational assets have been developed and widely implemented in Japan. For instance, Kawaijuku Group's national standardized mock test has become widely disseminated across Japan as the de facto standard for test-taking content and know-how.

We would like to utilize these educational assets even more widely, both within Japan and abroad, and are promoting a project to expand Kawaijuku Group's educational services to developing countries.

By localizing Kawaijuku Group's educational resources and distributing them around the world, we can create a virtuous cycle of not only resolving educational issues and raising educational standards in all countries involved, but also contributing to their development, thereby generating even more added value.

With these lofty goals in mind, we hope to spread the effectiveness of Japan-style education throughout the world, beginning with our test development project in Uzbekistan.
