1Asia Project

1Asia 2014


An initiative that encourages co-production and collaboration between Asian broadcasters and producers, based on the cooperation between the ABU and the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication, Japan. 1Asia 2014 provides an opportunity to utilize a wide variety of resources by working in collaboration with local companies and municipalities across different regions of Japan outside the largely well-known urban areas of the country. These locations will provide new themes and ideas that may not have been previously covered by media in other parts of Asia.
