) - The JETRO JETRO Japan External Trade Organization  Business Japanese Proficiency Test The Business Japanese Proficiency Test (BJT) is a test administered by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), designed to objectively measure a persons proficiency at communication using Japanese in a business environment.  (JETRO Test) has been renamed, as of January 2006, the "BJT See bipolar.  Business Japanese Proficiency Test", or BJT, and given a new logo, to mark the test's tenth anniversary.

In addition, the JLRT, or "JETRO Listening and Reading Comprehension" will become the "Japanese Listening and Reading Comprehension Test", and keep the "JLRT" abbreviation abbreviation, in writing, arbitrary shortening of a word, usually by cutting off letters from the end, as in U.S. and Gen. (General). Contraction serves the same purpose but is understood strictly to be the shortening of a word by cutting out letters in the middle, . Similarly, the JOCT, or "JETRO Oral Communication Test" will become the "Japanese Oral and Communication Test", also keeping the former abbreviation, or "JOCT". The new name, "BJT Business Japanese Proficiency Test", or BJT, is effective as of January 2006.

The name change will not affect the method and content of the test, nor will it have any affect on the validity of official test results (and certificates) issued for past administrations of the (formerly named) JETRO Business Japanese Proficiency Test.

JETRO hope that the test, now the BJT, will continue to gain international recognition among companies and students of Japanese around the world as a standard test for evaluating business Japanese proficiency.
