APAPAsia Pacific Agenda Project

Ninth Forum: Tokyo, Japan
March 19-21, 2004

The Ninth APAP Forum was held on March 19-21, 2004, in Tokyo, Japan. Close to 60 participants from countries throughout the Asia Pacific region gathered for discussions on the theme of "Toward East Asian Community Building: New Challenges of Regional Cooperation and Partnership."

The forum began with an overview session on challenges for East Asian community building, which was followed by a session on cooperation toward regional economic order. The third session focused on how to strengthen the intellectual underpinnings for East Asian community building, and the forum's fourth session addressed the issue of regional collaboration for peace building.
