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

Dear fellow IATSS participants and Friends!
My name is John Cuong Le. I’m a state auditor and currently working at the State Audit Office of Vietnam. I’m glad to say that my youth has been quite an exciting journey, in which I spent 2 years in Europe (France) and 7 years in the United States studying, working and gaining experience from cultures that are very much different from Vietnamese culture.
Participating in the IATSS forum in Japan is another exciting adventure that I’m totally thrilled to be a part of. I am convinced this program will be an invaluable opportunity for young (so-called) leaders like us can get an up-close exposure to the Japanese culture, history, people, nation and especially the Japanese renowned management philosophy.
I’m eagerly looking forward to start this journey and hoping to meet, exchange and learn from selected participants coming from other Asian countries.
“Kon'nichiwa” Batch 59, See you all in Suzuka this May!
