ASEAN and ROK Determine Future Directions

The 15th ASEAN-Republic of Korea (ROK) Joint Planning and Review Committee (JPRC) Meeting was held recently at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta. The Meeting highlighted several important areas to further strengthen cooperation, including expediting cooperation in political security and ASEAN Connectivity.

The Meeting reviewed the ASEAN-ROK cooperation for the past year, in particular the progress in the implementation of the ASEAN-ROK Plan of Action (2011-2015), and exchanged views on the future direction of the ASEAN-ROK relations. The Meeting also discussed the follow-up to the initiatives and outcomes of the 15th ASEAN-ROK Summit, which was held in November 2012 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Both sides underscored the need to ensure that all follow-up actions are undertaken in a timely manner.

The Meeting adopted the Terms of Reference (TOR) of the ASEAN-ROK Joint Cooperation Committee (JCC) and the ASEAN-ROK JCC Working Group. With the adoption of the TOR, the JPRC and the JPRC Working Group nomenclature will be replaced by the ASEAN-ROK JCC and ASEAN-ROK JCC Working Group, respectively, from 2014 onwards. The Meeting also noted the proposal of the ROK to convene the ASEAN-Korea Special Summit in December 2014 in ROK to commemorate the 25th anniversary of ASEAN-ROK dialogue relations.  

The Meeting was co-chaired by H.E. I Gede Ngurah Swajaya, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Indonesia to ASEAN and H.E. Baek Seong-taek, Ambassador of the ROK to ASEAN in Jakarta. The Permanent Representatives of ASEAN Member States to ASEAN and their representatives, officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the ROK, Mission of the ROK to ASEAN, and the ASEAN Secretariat attended the Meeting.
