JAIF Management Team


To manage and operate JAIF, the JAIF Management Committee was established in 2006, whose role was later subsumed by the ASEAN-Japan Joint Cooperation Committee Working Group (AJJCC-WG) in 2010. The AJJCC-WG reviews the operation of JAIF and the implementation of JAIF activities, and reports to the ASEAN-Japan Joint Cooperation Committee (AJJCC) which is comprised of the Permanent Representatives to ASEAN and the Ambassador of Japan to ASEAN.

ASEAN and the Government of Japan agreed to set up the JAIF Management Team (JMT) within the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta to enhance effective utilisation of JAIF in support of ASEAN Community building and integration efforts. One of the main roles of JMT is to assist proponents in formulating and reviewing project proposals, including inputs on financial and procedural matters, in close coordination with the Government of Japan and desk officers of the ASEAN Secretariat.

JMT commenced operations with three members on 1 February 2011 and has since expanded due to increased requests for assistance from both ASEAN and Japan. At present, JMT is composed of staffs from both the ASEAN region and Japan. The JMT office is located on the 5th Floor, Heritage Building of the ASEAN Secretariat.
