The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan is hosting the 3rd ASEAN-Japan Smart Cities Network High Level Meeting to promote cooperation for the ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN).

The 1st Meeting, held in October 2019, gathered approximately 800 participants, including invited guests from ASEAN countries. The Japanese government presented related Japanese technologies and know-how, discussed issues and needs common to ASEAN cities, and confirmed continued cooperation from Japan, led by the Japan Association for Smart Cities in ASEAN (JASCA).

The 2nd Meeting was held online in December 2020, in which some 1,200 participants shared success stories in related areas in ASEAN countries and Japan. On this occasion, the Japanese government proposed the Smart City supported by Japan ASEAN Mutual Partnership (Smart JAMP) , through which the Japanese government supports the realization of smart cities in ASEAN. The proposal was warmly welcomed by the ASEAN countries.

The upcoming 3rd Meeting is expected to further contribute to the promotion of smart cities across ASEAN, serving as a forum for sharing among the participants initiatives in ASEAN countries and the progress made through Smart JAMP since the previous Meeting, and for discussing concrete policy measures to realize smart cities.
