STRI Attends Asian Export Control Seminar in Tokyo

STRI attended the 27th annual Asian Export Control conference in Tokyo, Japan, the week of February 9. The conference was organized by the Center for Information on Security Trade Control (CISTEC) as an organizer, jointly with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) as co-organizers. During that week, STRI also met with CISTEC and Japanese university officials. Since 1993, the Asian Export Control Seminar has been organized for people in charge of export controls in Asian countries and regions, aiming to enhance Asian and international efforts toward non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) across Asian countries and the rest of the world by raising common awareness of the importance of security export control and establishing and enhancing export control systems.
