The study tour in Japan successfully ended.

The study tour for the counterparts was held for 12 days between 18th Feb. and 29th.

They heard from the related Ministries and industries to know the laws/regulations in Japan for e-waste recycling and also visited some recycling factories.

Based on the knowledge on the laws/regulations in Japan, we discussed possible regulations suitable for the situations in Malaysia. Also, ideas for the pilot project starting in next June tentatively were discussed based on the ideas for the future policies.

The Japanese experts are coming back to Penang on 4th March to discuss with the counterparts further.

The team visited a partial recovery facility in Tokyo.

The team discussed future possible policies based on the lessons learnt in the Japan tour.
