7th Meeting of High Level Task Force (HLTF) on Strengthening the ASEAN Secretariat and Reviewing the ASEAN Organs held in Mandalay

The Seventh and Final Meeting of the High Level Task Force (HLTF) on Strengthening the ASEAN Secretariat and Reviewing the ASEAN Organs was held at Mandalay Hill Resort Hotel, Mandalay from 21st to 24th October 2014.
The meeting was chaired by Director-General (Rted.) U Aung Bwa, Chair of HLTF and Myanmar Representative to the HLTF and attended by HLTF representatives and delegates from ASEAN Member States and U Nyan Lyann, Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN and officials from the ASEAN Secretariat.
As it is the final meeting of the HLTF, recommendations made by members of HLTF were finalized and adopted. The Report of the HLTF and their recommendations will be submitted to the ASEAN leaders at the 25th ASEAN Summit to be held in November 2014 in Nay Pyi Taw through 15th ASEAN Coordinating Council in accordance with the Terms of Reference of the HLTF. The HLTF focused its recommendations on strengthening ASEAN through streamlining and improving its work processes and coordination among ASEAN Organs, enhancing the conduct of ASEAN’s external relations as well as strengthening of the ASEAN Secretariat. The recommendations are made for “Immediate Term” (within 2 years), “Medium Term” (within 2 to 5 years) and “Long Term” (more than 5 years) for implementation.
ASEAN Leaders, in 2013, decided to establish the High Level Task Force (HLTF) on Strengthening the ASEAN Secretariat and Reviewing the ASEAN Organs. During Myanmar Chairmanship in 2014, seven meetings were held to deliberate on their mandates. It is expected that the recommendations of the HLTF will be instrumental in strengthening ASEAN Institutions including ASEAN Secretariat as well as to assist in realization of the Post-2015 ASEAN Community’s Vision to be adopted at the 27th ASEAN Summit in 2015. —Tin Maung (Mandalay)
