70th Conference Series (12)
Joint Declaration of Greater East Asia Conference

On November 6, 1943, the second day of the Greater East Asia Conference, a Joint Declaration was unanimously adopted.
The five basic principles of the Declaration are;
1. Common prosperity and well-being based on justice.
2. Mutual assistance and amity by respecting one another’s sovereignty and independence.
3. Enhance cultural civilization of Greater East Asia by respecting one another’s traditions and developing the creative faculties of each race.
4. Accelerate economic development through close cooperation upon a basis of reciprocity and promote thereby the general prosperity of the region.
5. Cultivate friendly relations with all the countries of the world and work for abolition of racial discrimination, the promotion of cultural intercourse and the opening of resources throughput the world, and contribute thereby the progress of mankind.
The Declaration represented a pivotal moment in world history. The Declaration was the first statement promoting racial equality ever, issued from the first summit of nonwhite peoples by Asian leaders.
Subas Chandra-Bose mentioned in his address at the Conference:
I pray to God that this Joint Declaration which this historic Assembly has unanimously adopted this afternoon may prove to be a charter for the nations of East Asia and, what is more, a charter for the suppressed nations of the whole world. May this Joint Declaration prove to be in the world’s history, the charter, the new charter of liberty for the year 1943 and after.
In August 1941, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill met aboard an American cruiser in the Atlantic and unveiled the “Atlantic Charter”. Although the Atlantic Charter airily promised to “respect the right of all peoples to choose the form of government under which they will live,” the pledge only to white, European peoples.
Thus, the Joint Declaration can be said to go well beyond the Atlantic Charter, advancing human freedom based on racial equality and human equality.
