JMT Discusses with Project Stakeholders involved in the ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Capacity Building Centre

JAKARTA, 5 August 2021 – The JAIF Management Team (JMT) organised a meeting to discuss two JAIF-supported projects, namely the ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Cooperation Hub (Step 1) and the ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Capacity Building Centre (Step 2). The meeting was attended by representative from the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society of Thailand, Desk Officer of the ASEAN Secretariat, and Officers in Charge of the Centre. The platform offered opportunities to understand the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of JAIF-supported projects in promoting capacity and strengthening cooperation in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector within the region.

A growing number of cybersecurity attacks on public networks has been occurred, and national security issues have been recognized not only within ASEAN but also globally. Japan’s involvement in both projects proved its consistent support for strengthening cybersecurity in the region. JMT acknowledged the best practice of setting up the Project Steering Committee (PSC) that played an important role in ensuring smooth project implementation. The discussion also served as an opportunity to enable closer ties between JMT and project counterparts in Thailand.
