Tourism & Exchange Division organized “Educational Travel Seminar to ASEAN” in Osaka to introduce ASEAN as the destination for school excursion and language training, through presentations by ASEAN NTOs and an airline and report from a school that has been visiting ASEAN Member States.
After organizing the seminar in Tokyo last year, it was decided to organize it in Osaka to further highlight ASEAN as educational destination in Kansai region. Many people attended the seminar from schools and travel industry and we were able to present the potential of ASEAN as educational travel destination. This year during the seminar and networking time, information corners of ASEAN NTOs and travel agencies were set up to further exchange practical information among participants.
