By joining the annual World Congress and ASPAC Conference, members will develop friendship and exchange JC experience with JC members from different nations. JCI also promotes the establishment of permanent relations between LOMs of different nations by twinning as sister Chapters in Area Conference such as ASPAC each year. By establishing sister relationship, sister Chapters usually arranged official visits and co-organizing projects to encourage cultural exchange and international friendship.
