This Forum called Japan Indonesia Economic Forum (JIEF) is established on April 16, 2003, to promote more Indonesia to especially Japanese society. For the first activity we would like to celebrate the establishment of this forum by making the Seminar – particularly on the economic development of the Republic of Indonesia, on October 2003, fully supported by Indonesian Embassy in Japan, Ministry of Trade and Industry of Japan, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.
This opportunity hopefully could gain a symphaty and could become as a pivotal moment to increase more awareness to both Indonesian and Japanese people to work together hand in hand and heart to heart toward the bright future of us.

Forum ini bernama Forum Ekonomi Jepang-Indonesia, didirikan tanggal 16 April 2003, untuk mempromosikan segala sesuatu yang berkaitan dengan Indonesia di masyarakat Jepang. Sebagai aktivitas pertama dan sebagai tanda dimulainya forum ini, kami menyelenggarakan seminar ekonomi pada bulan Oktober 2003, bekerjasama dengan Kedutaan Besar Republik Indonesia di Jepang. Didukung pula oleh Kementerian Perdagangan dan Industri Jepang (METI) serta Kementerian Luar Negeri Jepang (MOFA).
Kesempatan ini diharapkan dapat menarik perhatian serta simpati rakyat Jepang dan bisa meningkatkan kesadaran masyarakat bersama dalam upaya lebih mempererat persahabatan antara rakyat Indonesia dan rakyat Jepang di masa mendatang.
