JAKARTA, 22 February 2018 – The first Project Steering Committee (PSC) meeting of the ACHDA project was held on 22 February 2018 at the ASEAN Secretariat, back to back with the ASEAN-Japan Seminar on Cultural Heritage Digital Archive.

A project on digital archiving of ASEAN’s cultural heritage will make it possible for the public to access some of ASEAN’s museum collections more easily. The ASEAN Cultural Heritage Digital Archive (ACHDA) is a milestone project to digitize and present ASEAN’s selected cultural heritage on one website.
The project is being implemented by the ASEAN Secretariat with support from the Government of Japan through JAIF. NTT DATA will facilitate the digitization process in collaboration with cultural institutions in ASEAN member states. Indonesia and Malaysia will be the pilot countries in the project’s first phase.
