BINUS International Office Manager, Laily Alfa Citra, attended the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) International Symposium on last February 22 at the University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan. The symposium, which was attended by participants from SEAMEO Regional Centres, Southeast Asian countries and Japan, focused on theme "Bridging the ASEAN Community and Japan through Education". They discussed about individual academic disciplines with the host university faculty members, exchanging opinions and information for future activity support and cooperation. During the symposium, SEAMEO shared its newly-launched flagship project called “SEAMEO College”, a platform for high-level discussions on forward-looking issues to help prepare education leaders for the challenges of the future. Moreover, SEAMEO also presented its Post-2015 Education Agenda in Southeast Asia which is a result of consultation and foresight exercises with the support of the Government of Japan through the National Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP), MEXT Japan.

The symposium was organized by the University of Tsukuba’s Center for Research on International Cooperation in Educational Development (CRICED) and SEAMEO. It aims to deepen mutual understanding of SEAMEO Members and Japan by enhancing collaboration in education to promote life-long learning practices, share ongoing initiatives and extend potential cooperation. On the meeting, Laily managed to secure connections with Waseda University, bridging the possibility of exchange between BINUS and Waseda.
