Special Lecture & Dialogue with Students by Dr. Kao Kim Hourn, Secretary-General of ASEAN July 7, 2023

This year marks the 50th anniversary of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation. Since 1973, this relationship has evolved in response to various challenges in the region and developed into an indispensable partnership. In an increasingly unstable and complex international environment, what direction will ASEAN community building take in the future? How can Japan and ASEAN cooperate for regional stability and prosperity?
Secretary-General Kao, who will visit Japan on the occasion of the Special Meeting of Justice Ministers, will deliver a lecture and hold a dialogue with students.
(This lecture is open only to students, fellows, faculty, and staff of UTokyo.)
