The Japan–China Cooperation Department is the successor to the Sasakawa Japan–China Friendship Fund (originally launched in 1989), one of the largest private-sector programs supporting exchanges between Japan and China. From its establishment, the Fund promoted mutual understanding between the people of Japan and China and actively participated in efforts to build an environment for shaping constructive, cooperative ties between the two countries. In the future, the Department will organize people-to-people exchanges and dialogues in specific fields, provide information and facilitate an environment that can contribute to mutual understanding, and enhance the sharing of experiences and cooperation so as to advance both countries' society and economy. It will also maintain broad awareness about collaboration opportunities involving Japan, China, and other countries in East Asia and will explore new cooperation projects.
