There were 16 trainees from the heritage towns Banaue, Hungduan, Kiangan and Mayoyao who composed the 3rd batch, the last group of graduates that ended the ISMTP – First Phase on January 31, 2017.

The collaborative undertaking which is now on its Phase II implementation, launched on June 28, 2017, is made between the Ifugao State University, Kanazawa University of Japan, University of the Philippines-Open University, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Provincial and Municipal Local Government Units of Ifugao. #
