Sasakawa Japan–China Friendship Fund
The Sasakawa Japan–China Friendship Fund, which originally launched in 1989, is one of the largest private-sector programs supporting exchanges between Japan and China. Since its establishment, the fund has promoted mutual understanding between the people of Japan and China and actively participated in efforts to build an environment for shaping constructive and cooperative ties between the two countries. In the future, the fund will organize people-to-people exchanges and dialogues in specific fields, provide information, and facilitate the creation of an environment that can contribute to mutual understanding through enhanced efforts to share experiences and cooperate to advance the societies and economies of both countries. The fund will also maintain broad awareness about opportunities for collaboration between Japan, China, and other countries in East Asia.
