Asia SEED has been committed, since the time of its predecessor Japan Indonesia
Science and Technology Forum (JIF), to enhanceinternational cooperation
in higher education between many countries, particularly in Asia, and Japan.
Through collaboration with the government of Japan and other countries,
we lead innovation in the field by facilitatingmany “first” projects including Japan’s international aid loan for overseasstudents
project, educational exchange organization (EEO) projects, twining/double
degree programs to name a few. We also coordinated joint research based
university capacity development projects, and innovative entrepreneur education
Asia today is the dynamic place of growth in the world, where it renews
itself day by day. Japan is no longer the only country with economic power
in the region. The key to survival and prosperity of the nation lies in
the way how we can progress and co-exist with the growing Asian countries.
In this light, therefore, it is becoming more and more important for Japan
to contribute human resource development overseas and also raise the Japanese
certain skills to play active roles in the global settings.
Through our service with expertise in the field of international cooperation
in higher education, we move forward aiming to contribute Japan to grow
its presence as a trusted and respected partner in Asia and around the
world, and to further develop human resource network betweenJapan and Asia.
It is my sincerest wish that our work will be vital contribution to achieve
these goals and AsiaSEED and its people will be remembered with our dedication.
