AJC to Host “BIMP-EAGA Tourism Webinar -Japanese market insights and trends post-COVID-19-” on January 12, 2022

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The ASEAN-Japan Centre (AJC) will organize a webinar for tourism stakeholders in Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area or BIMP-EAGA on Wednesday, January 12, 2022. The webinar is designed to offer the latest information on the Japanese travel market and introduce how to promote tourism attractions of BIMP-EAGA to Japan.

The BIMP-EAGA was launched in 1994 to spur development in remote and less developed areas in the four participating Southeast Asian countries. These countries are geographically far from the national capitals, yet strategically close to each other. These states and provinces account for over 60% of the land area of the BIMP-EAGA countries; yet they make up less than 20% of their population and 18% of the labor force.

The five strategic pillars of BIMP-EAGA VISION 2025 are Connectivity, Food Basket, Environment, and Socio-cultural & Education, and Tourism. AJC held a series of symposiums focusing on the four pillars beside Tourism from November to December 2021. With this tourism webinar, it is covering all the strategic pillars of the VISION.

The upcoming tourism webinar will introduce interesting updates and trends of the Japanese market such as consumer sentiments of Japanese travelers and focus on ecotourism, one of the strengths of the region. It will also provide information on the digital marketing for tourism promotion.
