JMT Welcomes the Attachment Officers from CLMV Countries

JAKARTA, 3 May 2023 – The JAIF Management Team (JMT) welcomed the junior officers from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam (CLMV) to a JAIF briefing session. The officers are currently on the attachment programme under the Initiative for the ASEAN Integration (IAI) and working with relevant divisions of the ASEAN Political-Security Community, the ASEAN Economic Community, and the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community for one year to gain knowledge and understanding of regional cooperation.

The programme aims to assist CLMV countries to meet ASEAN regional commitments and ensure that the benefits of ASEAN integration are equally shared. JAIF has supported more than 100 officers from CLMV through the programme for more than a decade.

In his welcome remarks, Director Minamiguchi of JMT highlighted the importance of the programme in ASEAN’s integration efforts and encouraged the officials to make the best use of the opportunity. The Head of the IAI-Narrowing Development Gap (IAI-NDG) Division, Ms. Sumitra Jayaseelan, shared how much the programme is appreciated not only by CLMV countries but also by the ASEAN Secretariat.

JMT Programme Coordinator Miyuki Ishikawa provided a presentation about JAIF and JMT, followed by a discussion about the planned activities of the attachment programme, including a visit to Japan later this year.

ASEC IAI-NDG Division thanked JMT for the attachment programme.
