In order to increase knowledge of our young talented youth who study in Japan in order to gain knowledge and perspectives on the basis of international experience conducting research on scientific, cultural, economic and other areas can give useful results towards further development of Azerbaijan. In the true sense of the word, our young people to acquire high scientific perspective and international experience will certainly have a positive impact on the economic development of the country. Given this, it is necessary to increase science education and experience of talented youth in Japanese Universities.
