[Aim and purpose of training]
The Pacific Ocean countries are small in size, and the islands are scattered across the sea. The population is also limited, and the number of administrative officers tends to be small in proportion. Although there are central branch offices in remote islands that are rural areas, the number of administrative officers to which they belong is extremely small, and the purpose of administrative services to "deliver better administrative services to local residents/organizations" is difficult to fulfill.
On the other hand, administrative measures should be planned based on the needs of central and local governments and the participation of stakeholders such as residents, and further coordination and management to implement the project are required.
The role of such administrative management is none other than the administrative officer, and the training of administrative officers is extremely important. In other words, it can be said that administrative officers are required to strengthen the ability to act as a coordinator that connects “people” and deliver the voices of the people to the plan, and to plan and manage them.
Against this background, in this training, the young administrative officers of the central and local government agencies that connect the people of the Pacific Ocean countries and the government will manage the administrative purpose of Okinawa, the way administrative services should be, and the planning and management of business and actual business administration. The purpose was to improve management's ability to learn management and provide administrative services.
In order to achieve this purpose, we have organized a training that allows us to understand "who is the main player in the public" through activities by the government, the community, and citizens. In addition, youth training is written in English as Training Program for Young Leaders, and "leadership training" was adopted. Furthermore, we held a workshop to exchange opinions about administrative services with administrative officers in the prefecture and promoted the establishment of learning about administrative management.
From Okinawa, I was able to learn the passion for administrative services, leadership as an administrative officer, and how to collaborate with stakeholders, and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary as a “good leader”. The attitude toward training became more and more heated, and active exchange of opinions began. Based on the lessons learned in Okinawa, action plans for "youth outflow measures", "waste management", and "tourism promotion" were devised, which were deeply thought about what to do in their own countries. All of these were areas in which the administrative management of each country had to confront as soon as possible, and it included a strong passion for delivering administrative services. Also, I was able to reach out to many people and deepen my ties with Okinawa. Based on the above, it is evaluated that the purpose of this training, “the ability to provide administrative services is strengthened” was achieved.
