JAL Scholarship Asia Forum

Asia Forum
As a place in society to propose ideas

While adapting to the changing environment it is essential to remain aware of our solidarity as a member of the Asian community, and it was with consideration of ' Japan within Asia, Asia within the World' and 'Solidarity in the 21st Century' that the program was established in 1993.
The Asia Forum allows the scholars to present their observations, various fieldwork, results of exchange and develop their respective arguments.
We hope that this Program will promote strong bonds of solidarity and friendship, as well as develop mutual understanding and interpersonal identification.

Towards the possibility of creating a Global Community

The Asia Forum was inaugurated in 1993 amongst the diversity of Asia that differs in culture, history, race and language. Its purpose was the research of and proposal of 'the possibility of creating a trans-national community'.
It was first held in Kanazawa City , Ishikawa Prefecture . Under the theme of 'Environment and Development', the panel discussion between the Japanese students and scholars that continued on from the keynote speech of Mr. Akito Arima was opened.
This forum carries out an important role in the formation of the future community, expansion of exchange networks and promoting international understanding
