This January, Japan and United Kingdom Defence Ministers agreed to collaborate to support capacity building assistance in Southeast Asia. The Capacity Building Assistance Programme is the newest pillar of collaboration between our two countries.
In today’s world, no single country can secure its own peace and security independently, and the international community needs to address global issues in concert. Through its Capacity Building Assistance Programme, Japan’s Ministry of Defence, utilising the Japan Self Defence Forces’ capabilities, seeks to enable partner countries’ efforts to contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the global security environment.
Director Mitsuko Hayashi will provide an overview of the Capacity Building Assistance Programme and explore current activities and collaboration with partner countries.
