MANILA, Philippines --- The Philippines is hosting two Association of Southeast Asian Nations conferences in Mactan, Cebu on November 12 to 16. These are the 13th ASEAN Telecommunications and Information Technology Senior Officials Meeting (Telsom) and the 12th ASEAN Telecommunications and IT Ministers Meeting (Telmin).

The Department of Science and Technology-Information and Communications Technology
Office (DoST-ICTO) is organizing the two events, with DoST Secretary Mario Go. Montejo as
chairman of Telmin.

Aside from the 10 ASEAN members, also coming for the two events are officials from the
regional group's dialogue partners, such as China, India, Japan, Korea, the European Union
(EU) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

Leading the country's senior officials' delegation is Undersecretary Louis Napoleon C.
Casambre, ICTO executive director.

"We are looking forward to hosting this very important gathering and exchanging ideas with our
ASEAN counterparts, as well as exploring new avenues of cooperation with our dialogue
partners. The Philippines is looking at playing a more active role in ICT development in the
ASEAN region, particularly in the areas of ICT infrastructure and people empowerment,"
Casambre said.

Delegates will be tackling "the region’s progress in ICT relative to the ASEAN ICT Masterplan
(AIM) and map out policy directions for ASEAN’s ICT initiatives for the coming year," the DoSTICTO said.
