The ten countries comprising the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have formulated their respective national communication plans towards the goal of One ASEAN Community by 2015.

During the 47th Meeting of the ASEAN Committee on Culture and Information in Ha Noi, Viet Nam on December 10-15, 2012, the Philippines reported that all the ASEAN Member States are ready to implement communication activities in support of ASEAN Community building following the approval and submission of their country communication plans.

The plans include communication activities in support of ASEAN’s three Pillars: Political-Security Community, Economic Community, and Socio-Cultural Community.

These national communication plans were drafted during a Technical Working Group (TWG) Meeting held in the Philippines in June this year under the direction of the ASEAN Ministers Responsible for Information. During this TWG Meeting, Member States agreed on common communication objectives, target audiences, and messages for each of the three Pillars. The draft plans were then referred for approval by the respective information ministries of the Member States.

With these plans in place, the ASEAN hopes to promote a secure and peaceful environment in the region, support equitable economic development among all Member States, and promote ASEAN as one caring and sharing community.

The ASEAN is composed of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam.(PIA)
