The Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) was officially established in March 2006, based on the pledge from then Japanese Prime Minister H.E. Mr. Junichiro Koizumi at the Ninth ASEAN-Japan Summit held in December 2005 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

JAIF aims at supporting integration efforts to create the ASEAN Community by facilitating the implementation of the ASEAN 2025: Forging Ahead Together, and strengthening the functioning of the ASEAN National Secretariats of the new AMSs and the ASEC; support the implementation of the ASEAN Blueprints, with particular emphasis on the narrowing the development gaps among AMSs; promote greater cooperation between ASEAN and Japan by advancing ASEAN integration but also to strengthening ASEAN-Japan relations by implementing various projects in the areas of disaster management, the environment, health, counterterrorism, maritime cooperation, economic integration, and others.

ASEAN Secretariat

The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) was established in 1967, with the signing of the ASEAN Declaration. Its core ambitions are to maintain peace and stability within the region and to promote political, economic and socio-cultural cooperation. The ratification of the ASEAN Charter on 15 December 2008 led to the institutionalisation of ASEAN, as well as to the organisational structuring and strengthening of the ASEAN Secretariat.

The ASEAN Secretariat was set up in February 1976 by the Foreign Ministers of ASEAN. It was then housed at the Department of Foreign Affairs of Indonesia in Jakarta

The ASEAN Secretariat's basic function is to provide for greater efficiency in the coordination of ASEAN organs and for more effective implementation of ASEAN projects and activities. The ASEAN Secretariat's mission is to initiate, facilitate and coordinate ASEAN stakeholder collaboration in realising the purposes and principles of ASEAN as reflected in the ASEAN Charter.
