The Cancellation of the IATSS Forum Spring Batch (May to July 2020)

We regret to announce that the 63rd IATSS Forum, scheduled from May to July 2020, has been canceled for the following reasons.

  1. The number of COVID-19 infections in Japan still continues to increase at this moment, and it seems that this trend may continue for a while.
  2. Under these uncertain circumstances, we cannot guarantee a safe and healthy environment for participants and people concerned at the IATSS Forum.
  3. Travel to Japan may be restricted by the governments of respective countries.
  4. Upon the completion of the program in Japan, there is a risk of traveling restrictions back to respective countries from Japan. Even if participants are able to go back to their respective countries, they may be requested to engage in self-isolation for 14 days.

Voice before the participation

Warm greetings from Vietnam to all dear IATSS Staffs and inspiring fellows,
My name is Vu Tuan Anh (Ken). I am Secretary to Vice President of Vietnam Oil & Gas Group (Petrovietnam).

No matter what field we belong to, the importance of young leaders cannot be underestimated. It’s really my honor to be chosen as a member of IATSS forum with these inspiring young leaders across South East Asia countries.
I strong believe that the IATSS Forum Program offers a golden chance for each participant. This program will not only promote cultural exchange but also enhance mutual understanding among us. I would learn many valuable lessons and build the overall picture of ASEAN countries from experiences of my friends who are experts in their fields. Best of all, going through 55 days together, we will form an effective team and tighten the relationship among ASEAN countries and Japan.
Seize this opportunity surely is one of the remarkable achievements in my life, I shall put all my effort in the program and try to apply these lessons I have learnt when I get back.
Can’t wait to see you in Suzuka…
Vu Tuan Anh
