JAIF Management Team

In order to manage and operate the 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 the JAIF and the implementation of JAIF-supported activities, and reports to the ASEAN-Japan Joint Cooperation Committee (AJJCC) which is attended by 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 the effective utilisation of the fund in supporting 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.

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