Bloggers and the Formation of the ASEAN Community 2015

With the support from the  Directorate General for ASEAN Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs , I took an initiative to hold  ”Seminars and Dissemination Implementation of the ASEAN Charter and the establishment of the ASEAN Community in 2015? in Hotel Inna Simpang on 22 May 2010.  I invited Ambassador Hazairin Pohan,  dr. Raden Ajeng Purwaningsih (Ajengkol) and Abdul Ghofur (Gempur) as speakers at this event. While the participants were bloggers from Surabaya (tugupahlawan.com), Bangkalan, Mojokerto, Malang, and Gresik.

As reflected from the theme of the event. I would like to inform the development of ASEAN cooperation, especially after the signing of the ASEAN Charter on 15 December 2010 to the public through bloggers. In my view, people should know ”the new ASEAN” as an organization  with clear legal rules and have legal personality. Pueople should also aware that ASEAN continues to move toward the establishment of an ASEAN Community in 2015 with motto “one  vision, one identity, one community” .

Indonesia’s Role in ASEAN

Agreed with the ASEAN Charter on December 15, 2008, the ASEAN become a new regional organization, with a clear rule of law and have legal personality.

With motto one vision, one identity, one community, ASEAN continued to move toward the establishment of an ASEAN Community 2015.
