Clarification: Press Release by Justice for Myanmar

The ASEAN-Japan Centre would like to inform the public that the press release issued by Justice for Myanmar on May 26, 2023, regarding the activities of the ASEAN-Japan Centre contains some factual inaccuracies, including the statement that the Centre provides grants to member states and misinterpretation of our activities. The correct information is as follows:

  1. The Centre does not provide grants to member states. It is an international organization dedicated to promoting trade, investment, tourism, and people-to-people exchanges between ASEAN member states and Japan.
  2. “50 Mindful Travel in ASEAN” is a tourism project approved by the Council of Directors of the Centre to promote the ASEAN region as a whole on the occasion of the 50th Year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation. The purpose of this project is to promote tourism in the ASEAN region as a whole and does not specifically aim to promote tourism to Myanmar.

The Secretariat of Centre works for the benefit of the people in ASEAN and Japan, and the promotion of tourism is one of the pillars of our activities due to the wide-ranging economic benefits that tourism can bring and its contribution to improving the lives of people in the region.
