Since ASEM leaders emphasized the importance of tourism as an engine for growth and a crucial tool to enhance people-to-people exchanges in the Chair`s Statement of the 10th ASEM Summit (ASEM10) in 2014, Japan has contributed to cooperation among ASEM members in this area through organizing symposiums. In the past, Japan co-hosted such symposiums with Myanmar in February 2017, and Indonesia in February 2018.

On 3rd December, Croatia and Japan co-hosted the ASEM symposium as one of the memorial events of the 25th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Croatia. This symposium focused on Sustainable Tourism & Education for Tourism.
