We at the AHA Centre are proud to be able to assist in preparing future disaster management leaders who will not only help their nations but also ASEAN and the world," said Mr. Said Faisal, the Executive Director of the AHA Centre during the launch of the ACE Programme.

The ACE Programme will be implemented in three batches until next year, 2016, aiming to generate up to 60 new disaster management champions across ASEAN.

The official opening ceremony was graced by the presence of H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN, H.E. Koichi Aiboshi, Ambassador of Japan to ASEAN, and Col (R) Pengiran Dato Paduka Hj Rosli bin Pengiran Hj Chuchu, Director of National Disaster Management Centre of Brunei Darussalam as Chair of the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management (ACDM).
