Promoting International Exchange

 In order to contribute to the realization of digital transformation and a sustainable society in the international community, AMB promotes various international exchanges, including the dissemination of Japan's efforts in digital government, while strengthening cooperation with international organizations and foreign public specialized organizations.

 In recent years, the set of general rules of administrative institutions has been attracting a lot of attention from Asian countries as administrative underpinnings for attaining integrity and transparency in administrative procedures, and AMB has been sharing information regarding Japan’s Administrative Procedure Act and Administrative Complaint Review Act with other countries.

 Sessions that AMB conducted, as well as training groups and delegations that AMB received, within the past three years are shown below.
