Libyan Cloud News Agency – Tripoli
A ceremony was held in Tripoli on Tuesday to celebrate the graduation of 14 young people who have finished their 3-month course on car maintenance and customer services skills in Toyota Libya’s dealerships in four cities across Libya.
The Government of Japan sponsored the course through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP)’s “Stabilization to Recovery Transition (START) in Libya.
The Director General of Toyota Libya told the Libyan Cloud News Agency that it is one of the policies of Japanese companies to contribute through social responsibility, indicating that Toyota gives training grants to young people and they obtain approved certificates which they can work with authorized distributors or start their own activity.
Toyota Managing Director CEO, Naohiro Masuda, conveyed in a video played during the ceremony his gratitude to the Government of Japan and the UNDP for their great support, adding that the company has always tried to contribute positively to the Libyan society.
It is noteworthy that the UNDP and Toyota Libya signed an agreement in 2018 to create job opportunities for youth. Through this mutual cooperation, more than 55 young men acquired skills in car maintenance and 60 young women in customer services.
