ASEAN Summit 2011

The Head of States / Governments of 10 members of the Association of South East Asia Nations (ASEAN) will meet today, Saturday 7 May, and Sunday 8 May, at the Jakarta Convention Center, Jakarta.

As the annual Chairman of ASEAN for 2011, President Susilo Bambang Yudoyono is scheduled to open the meeting at 9 am this morning. There are three main agenda for the summit meeting :

1)  To ensure the establishment of the ASEAN Community in 2015
2)  To ensure that South East Asia will remain as a peaceful and stable region 
3)  ASEAN participation in maintaining world peace.

Beside that, there are other important issues such as the ASEAN-China Free Trade Area, South China Sea dispute, Thai-Cambodia border conflict, Joint Rice Buffer Stock, Fighting Pirates, etc.

In connection with the establishment of the ASEAN Community in 2015, I hope that all the governments of member countries would socialize the ASEAN programs to their people.

sebaiknya dalam pertemuan tersebut.. masalah perbatasan dan hak citpa harus di agendakan/ diprioritaskan.

masalah rawan yang saya sebut diatas saya pikir sudah sangat mendesak.. untuk antipasi sentimen dan tidak saling menghargai antara negara tetangga

A lot of security measures have been taken. And there is a lot on the agenda too. But the main thing is what concrete results will be achieved.

@Wisata Murah,
Saya sependapat dengan anda, masalah hak cipta dan perbatasan sering mengakibatkan persengketaan.

@Peter (Kiwi)
The ASEAN Community will be based on 3 pilars : Security, Economics and Socio-Cultural.

@Colson,
Yes, you are right, the most important is what concrete result will be achieved.
