Five years after ASEAN establishment in 1967, Japan had its first dialogue, and on the 10th anniversary of ASEAN, Japan announced the Fukuda Doctrine. The Fukuda Doctrine promises Japan’s resolve to be a nation committed to peace and never again become a military power, to consolidate our relationship of mutual confidence and trust based on a “heart-to-heart” understanding as a true friend, and to support ASEAN’s own efforts to strengthen their solidarity and resilience as an “equal partner”.
Since then, the relationship between ASEAN and Japan has continued to develop, and this year, we commemorate the 50th Year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation. Taking this opportunity, the Government of Japan (GoJ) will work with ASEAN to promote various commemorative events to highlight and further strengthen the longstanding relations between ASEAN and Japan.
The Mission of Japan to ASEAN in cooperation with Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia is organising the “Commemorative Symposium for the 50th Year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation”. This symposium is a major kick-off event in Jakarta to deepen the understanding of the development of the ASEAN-Japan relationship for half a century and to discuss the way forward to elevate it to a new stage with a view to promoting peace, stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.
