Areas of Support and Key Contributions
Since its establishment in March 2006, the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) has been the main tool for the Government of Japan to support ASEAN integration efforts. Among a number of JAIF projects contributing to the IAI Work Plan, a flagship project for the Government of Japan is the Attachment of Officers from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam (CLMV) to the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC)
or simply the “Attachment Programme
,” which has produced a number of senior officials who have become ambassador, deputy minister, and director-general.
Aside from the Attachment Programme, with the adoption of the current IAI Work Plan III
in 2016, JAIF has been supporting the identified strategic areas on Food and Agriculture and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME).
The following are the key contributions of completed/implemented projects to-date.
