ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit 2012 – New Delhi.
India is hosting the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit on December 20-21, 2012 to mark the 20th anniversary of our dialogue-level partnership and the 10th anniversary of our Summit-level partnership with ASEAN. The theme of the Summit is ‘ASEAN-India Partnership for Peace and Shared Prosperity’.
The Prime Ministers of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, the Sultan of Brunei, the Presidents of Indonesia and Myanmar and the Vice President of the Philippines are participating at the Summit.
Cambodia, as the ASEAN Chair, will be Co-Chairing the Commemorative Summit with India. Brunei is now the Country Coordinator for ASEAN’s Dialogue Partnership with India.
ASEAN-India dialogue relations have grown rapidly from a sectoral dialogue partnership in 1992 to a full dialogue partnership in December 1995. ASEAN-India have had annual Summits since 2002.
Ongoing collaboration under the ASEAN-India partnership is guided by the Plan of Action (2010-2015) for Peace, Progress and Shared Prosperity adopted at the 8th ASEAN-India Summit in 2010 in Hanoi, Vietnam. At the 10th ASEAN-India Summit at Phnom Penh, Cambodia in November 2012, ASEAN and Indian Leaders took stock of progress under the Plan of Action.
At the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit Plenary on December 20, 2012, the Leaders are expected to set out their vision for the future direction of ASEAN-India relations in order to enhance the level of engagement and integration between the ASEAN countries and India.
