Japan and Singapore Strategic Partners Developing the Region
Singapore and Japan have teamed up with initiatives such as the Japan Singapore Partnership Program for the 21st Century (JSPP 21) to facilitate ASEAN integration and provide technical cooperation to third countries. How has the Singapore-Japan relationship contributed thus far and are there any special plans in motion as 2020 approaches?
First established in 1994, the JSPP21 is one of Singapore’s most successful and longstanding development partnerships with over 6,400 alumni participants. We renewed our partnership in Dec 2018 to expand our outreach to the Asia-Pacific region and consider new forms of joint cooperation, such as conducting joint seminars in third countries and supplementing each other’s training programmes.
