50 Years of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation

Celebrating 50 remarkable years of friendship and cooperation, Japan and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) have established an enduring partnership since the Japan-ASEAN Synthetic Rubber Forum in 1973. This relationship has grown to promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the ASEAN region, expanding beyond business into areas like culture, youth exchanges, tourism, and sustainability initiatives.

In 2023, as we celebrate the 50th Year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation, the Mission of Japan to ASEAN and the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) will lead various engaging programs. These events will reflect our shared values and commitments to collaboration in areas including maritime cooperation, connectivity, SDGs, and economic and other possible area of cooperation.

Join us in these landmark celebrations, including the ASEAN-Japan Fair, the Golden Mission, and the Golden Friendship Fun Walk & Run. Together, we move towards a new era of collaboration and understanding.
