Message from Executive Director of the Secretariat

The Asia is ONE! Not only in the physical meaning but also in the dimension of philosophy.

We, the Asians are now witnessing the rise of ‘Asian Epistemic Community’.

Until the mid 20th century, most of the people in the world had believed that only Western philosophy and knowledge should invite us to the highly industrialized modern society.  After then, however, some Asian countries have shown the stylized facts that the Asian Epistemic Heritage is the key factor of successful industrialization.

PBL, Project Based Learning is one of the sophisticated model of the Asian Epistemic Heritage.
I, as the Executive Director of the Secretariat of APEN, am sure that I shall devote myself into the development of the Asian Common Heritage and thus contribute to the realization of the prosperity of Asia in the 21st century.
