Thank You for Making Q-AOS Symposium 2021 a Resounding Success

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who participated in and presented at the Kyushu University Institute for Asian and Oceanian Studies (Q-AOS) Symposium 2021, which opened on the first day of the Kyushu University Asia Week 2021 that ran from October 13 to October 27. I would also like to thank everyone who helped organize the event for all their hard work.

I would also like to extend my appreciation to the international agencies, local authorities, academic societies, and other related organizations that offered their support during Q-AOS Symposium 2021.

Although this year’s symposium was once again held online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it proved to be a richly diverse and fruitful event thanks to the participation of a wide range of participants. Discussions included renowned researchers in Japan and overseas, people active on the front lines of industry, and the students, faculty, and staff of Kyushu University.

As the global population migrates to urban centers, the success of Sustainable Development Goals in poverty, climate change, healthcare, and education will hinge on how cities evolve and grow. I hope that this symposium has proved to be an enhancing opportunity for efforts to make the SDGs a reality.

Thank you again for your participation in this year’s symposium, and I look forward to your continued support of Q-AOS in the future.

The two-day program included guest lectures from six leading researchers and practitioners, panel discussions attended by Kyushu University faculty members, and presentations held across six group sessions, all of which involved thought-provoking talks and lively discussions.
