First of all, on behalf of PERSADA, please allow me to extend my congratulations to The General Chairperson of JUGAS, Chairman of the 26th ASCOJA Conference, all committee and member of JUGAS on having successfully held the first conference with a hybrid scheme.
There has been 2 years since we all have to face an outbreak of the first worldwide pandemic, then, we are finally insisted to be adaptable to the new condition which nobody has ever thought before. Now we would be able to be ready to face our new life and procedures in this “New Normal” era, always using mask, keep the distance and strictly following health protocol as well as during ASCOJA Conference.
Through this ASCOJA Conference themed "Out of The Tunnel and into The Light - The New Norm after Covid-19 for ASEAN and Japan," it reflects the existence and confidence of ASCOJA and ASJA during this difficult time.
We hope the cooperation which has been coursed among all ASCOJA members and ASJA would be continue and give the benefit for ASEAN and Japan.
I wish JUGAS for a very successful and fruitful conference.
Chairman of PERSADA
