Have you ever gone from being metres away from red-hot steel barreling down a production line one day…

For two weeks, myself and five other QUT students had the chance to gain inside knowledge of the Australia-Japan relationship as participants in the Mitsui Immersion Program: a program facilitated by Japanese multinational Mitsui & Co. under the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan. The program aims to strengthen people-to-people links by providing Australian students with business and cultural insights into one of our closest regional partners.
