JCRD Support Project for Local Government Antenna Shops

  • Create a column for antenna shops in our website to post information on each shop.
  • Conduct a fact-finding survey each year and release information about the current situations. About 700,000 persons have downloaded the information from May to August 2013.
  • Hold information exchange sessions for local government antenna shops twice a year.
  • Provide advice and consultation sessions to local governments and companies, media coverage, and shop tours.
  • For the past several years JCRD has been holding tours of antenna shops and seminars for foreigners who wish to pursue similar initiatives in their own countries. The participants have included representatives from African countries like Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda, and Asian countries including Malaysia, Pakistan, and Fiji. More recently, representatives from the United States, Canada, Australia, the Philippines, and South Korea have also taken part.
