ASEAN Sec Gen reiterates urgency on AEC implementation by 2015

“The ASEAN Foreign Ministers discussed strategic and political-security issues that are critical to the resilience and relevance of ASEAN, as well as issues of common concern and interest to the region,” said H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN, at the Post-46th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM) / Post Ministerial Conference (PMC) / 20th ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) / 3rd East Asia Summit Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (EAS FMM) and Related Meetings Briefing, held today at the ASEAN Secretariat, Jakarta.

SG Minh said that the Meetings—which took place 27 June – 2 July 2013 in Brunei Darussalam—reiterated the urgent need to intensify efforts to realize the ASEAN Community by 2015 by effective and timely implementation of the ASEAN Charter, the Roadmap for an ASEAN Community, the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity, the IAI Work Plan II (2009-2015), and the ASEAN Roadmap towards realizing the Millennium Development Goals. He also reminded that ASEAN Community 2015 is “a process, not an event”.  It is a community that will continue to evolve after 31 December 2015.

SG Minh briefed the audience on the highlights of ongoing efforts with partners including China, the EU, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Russia, the United States and others. He also shared outcomes and follow-up actions from those Meetings such as realising an ASEAN’s common global platform by 2022 as envisioned in the Bali Concord III which has an aspirational goal of doubling the region’s combined GDP while halving the ASEAN people living in poverty by 2030; and tasking senior officials consolidate ASEAN’s existing initiatives, recommend new and strengthening regional cooperation measures to combat the haze issue, and report on the progress of these efforts.
