Webinar on the Keidanren (Japan Business Federation)’s Policy Recommendations on Japan-ASEAN Relations in the New Era

The ASEAN-Japan Centre (Centre) is pleased to invite you to a Webinar on the Japan Business Federation (Keidanren)’s Policy Recommendations on Japan-ASEAN Relations in the New Era. This webinar will be co-organized with Keidanren in commemoration of the establishment of the Subcommittee on ASEAN Economic Relations within the Committee on Asia and Oceania at Keidanren.  Keidanren is one of the three largest trade associations in Japan with the membership of approximately 1,400 large Japanese companies.   

In June 2021, Keidanren has launched a policy paper and proposed comprehensive recommendations on Japan-ASEAN relations in the new era.  Keidanren already presented such policy paper to the Government of Japan (see http://www.keidanren.or.jp/en/policy/2021/056.html for its English version). 

In this webinar, Mr. Hideyuki Tanaka, the Chair of the Subcommittee and Managing Executive Officer of Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company, Limited, will present Keidanren’s proposed policy recommendations and elaborate on potential actions envisioned for further enhancing linkages between Japanese business sector and ASEAN.

In a collaboration framework arrangement between the Centre and Keidanren, the Centre will assist Keidanren in promoting its committed proposition, as emphasized in its policy paper, for “the Japanese business sector to strengthen cooperation with ASEAN to co-create new values toward the realization of a sustainable society and work together to open up a new era”.

Following Mr. Tanaka’s presentation, there will be a Q&A session for pre-registered questions, to which the Centre welcomes active participation from audiences, including ASEAN delegation/governmental officials, ASEAN trade associations, ASEAN business sector and Japanese business sector.
