APAPAsia Pacific Agenda Project

First Forum: Tokyo, Japan
November 20-21, 1995


The Asia Pacific Agenda Tokyo Forum was held on November 20-21, 1995, to commemorate JCIE's 25th anniversary. The forum, attended by more than 150 leading representatives of policy research institutions from Asia, the United States, and Europe, was designed in part to celebrate JCIE's accomplishments over its first 25 years and to consider its future course. More importantly, the forum served as the founding meeting of the Asia Pacific Agenda Project (APAP), a multipronged research and dialogue project aimed at developing an effective collaborative network among policy research institutions in the region.

The session topics included the future of Asia Pacific after the just-held Osaka meeting of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC); the role of independent research and dialogue institutions in the region; a review of ongoing collaborative research and dialogue activities; a future research agenda for the region; and building institutional infrastructure through networks. JCIE's 25th anniversary reception was held in conjunction with the forum. The celebration brought together a great number of friends and supporters of JCIE from over the years, including former Japanese Prime Ministers Kiichi Miyazawa, Morihiro Hosokawa, and Tsutomu Hata. A conference report was published in 1996.
