ASEAN Supports CLMV, Welcomes Attachment Officers to Build Capacity Ahead of Regional Integration

An innovative CLMV Attachment Officers Programme, a project-oriented learning opportunity for officers from ministries of the governments of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam (CLMV) to gain experience on regional cooperation under the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) Blueprints commenced at the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC).

“We very much welcome the additional CLMV officers to ASEC. The topics that ASEAN is now engaged with in the economic and socio-cultural spheres require the officers to understand and appreciate the regional perspective,” says H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN during his recent meeting with the officers. “That will be their main education and contribution to ASEAN,” he added.

Eight Officers from the CLMV will be assigned in various AEC and ASCC departments and divisions to partake in programmes and areas of cooperation. Officers will receive hands-on assignment based on ASEC’s current operational needs and work collaboratively with ASEC staff to gain a deeper understanding of regional issues while contributing to its daily work. The Officers will also become familiarized with the work, activities, and procedures pertaining to ASEC, including preparing and organizing meetings and conferences under the ASEAN framework. In the process, the Officers are able to form themselves as a network of CLMV professionals, bonded by a common experience and compassion toward achieving ASEAN goals.

After the year-long attachment programme, the competency, capacity, and confidence of the participating Officers in managing AEC and ASCC-related matters of their home countries are expected to be enhanced. The programme is also expected to deepen the participants’ understanding and knowledge about ASEAN’s strategic partnership with dialogue partners, especially with Japan.

“This programme will help the CLMV narrow the development gap with ASEAN-6 and thus contribute to the efforts of ASEAN to building the ASEAN Community by 2015. Please take this opportunity to learn what is happening on the ground,” says H.E. Kimihiro Ishikane, Ambassador of Japan to ASEAN last week when he met the officers.

The Attachment of Officers from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam for AEC and ASCC Involvement at the ASEAN Secretariat is a new initiative of the Government of Japan supported through the Japan ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF).

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
