CHAIR’ S MESSAGE―
In concert with JPFP, APDA has created a network of parliamentarians on population and development, an innovative framework through which we have been able to share Japan’s own experiences and a diverse range of knowledge from around the world and to accomplish concrete results.
As we mark the 40th anniversary of APDA, we hope to continue to collaborate with various organizations across national borders in addressing population and development issues towards achievement of the SDGs and beyond.
In doing so, we hope, in particular, to put efforts into respecting each individual, drawing out their full potential, valuing each other’s culture and tradition, and elevating humanity.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our partners in Japan and abroad for your support and cooperation.
