College officials highlighted the benefits of cultural exchanges and the importance of strengthening relations with JICA through initiatives such as the JICA Chair Programme at SALCC. The JICA Chair Programme comprises a series of activities with partner countries to share information about/on Japan.

This may involve short lectures, joint research activities etc. On February 7, 2022, the SALCC in collaboration with JICA held the first lecture - Educational Development and Modernization in Japan: Lessons for Saint Lucia. This lecture was delivered by Dr. Nobuko Kayashima.
