OutlineASEAN has built a network called the ASEAN Cooperation on Civil Service Matters with the purpose of promoting regional cooperation in civil service systems and civil service personnel management. The National Personnel Authority of Japan (NPA) participates as a representative of Japan in the ASEAN Plus Three Cooperation on Civil Service Matters (ACCSM+3), and supports the implementation of various cooperative projects.
The NPA hosted the International Symposium “The Future of Civil Service” in a hybrid format on 27 September 2023. The Symposium was organized to share knowledge and experiences to deepen the understanding of how civil service systems can adapt to the wide range of challenges faced within the civil service and enhance expertise applicable for future policy making.
Senior officials and officials of the organizations in charge of personnel administration from ASEAN Member States, as well as China, the Republic of Korea, and Australia, participated in the Symposium. They made presentations about their respective country’s challenges, initiatives, and/or visions for the civil service system. Following the presentations, the participants had an active and fruitful discussion.
The NPA hopes that the discussion will help in their work towards solving the challenges in their country.
