The ASEAN-Japan Centre (AJC) organized the Seminar on Educational Travel to ASEAN on August 15, 2019 in Tokyo. The seminar introduced ASEAN as the destination for school trip through presentations by ASEAN National Tourism Organizations (NTOs), an airline, and school as well as local government that have been organizing student trips to the ASEAN Member States.
The AJC organized similar seminars in Tokyo and Osaka in 2017 and 2018, respectively. It was timely to organize the seminar in Tokyo to further highlight ASEAN as educational destination as the Tokyo Metropolitan Government relaxed its school trip regulation in 2019. The AJC also provided an opportunity for seminar participants to collect information from NTOs and travel agencies by setting up an information section in the venue.
