Message from the Ambassador of Japan in Pakistan
and Patron-in-Chief MAAP

MAAP has become an active network that is steadily growing every year. This webpage is a great source of information for all Pakistani friends who wish to study or live in Japan. I also hope that this initiative will provide the basis for this association to enhance further its contribution towards the promotion of understanding on the Japanese culture and education in Pakistan especially we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and Japan in 2022.  The Embassy of Japan will continue to provide its full support and cooperation to MAAP for such endeavors in the future as well.

My best wishes for MAAP in building of a successful website.

Dr. Nasir Mahmood Khan
