He said generally the Ship for World Youth program aims at fostering leadership qualities in youths in a more internationalised society through living together and communicating with one another for 38 days on board the ship.
Approximately 212 youths from eleven countries will participate in the 25th SWY Program. The participating countries include Japan, Fiji, Bahrain, Chile, Costa Rica, Kenya, United Mexican States, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.
The Minister said that the Fijian delegation will be made up of nine young Fijians and a National Leader.
