“There are 12 meetings which will be chaired by the President, including the 43rd ASEAN Summit in plenary format, the 43rd ASEAN Summit in retreat format, the 26th ASEAN-China Summit, and the 24th ASEAN-South Korea Summit,” said the Director General ASEAN Cooperation Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Kemlu), Sidharto R Suryodipuro, to the media crew.

Apart from ASEAN member countries, this summit was also attended by ASEAN partner organizations and countries, such as the United States, Japan, as well as the IMF and World Bank.

According to Sidharto, the ASEAN Summit in plenary or retreat format will be held on September 5 2023. Then on the following day, a summit will be held between ASEAN and partner countries which will last until September 7 2023.

Meanwhile, on 7 September 2023, the East Asia Summit and the ASEAN Plus Three Summit will also be held.

“But the main goal that is expected is to strengthen the achievement and foundation of the ASEAN 2045 vision. Apart from that, strengthening ASEAN institutions, both in terms of more effective and efficient decision making, as well as matters of organizational substance,” said Sidharto.

Previously, as reported on the official website of the Ministry of State Secretariat, in his remarks at the commemoration of ASEAN’s 56th anniversary, President Jokowi emphasized the importance of ASEAN solidity and regional stability in order to face global challenges and realize ASEAN as a center for growth. In particular, the President emphasized the importance of implementing the Five Point Consensus in resolving the conflict in Myanmar.

“We hope that the problem in Myanmar will be resolved soon because it concerns humanity, concerns the people of Myanmar, and in reality it is not easy, it is very complex, the conflict is no longer one conflict with two, but with three, with four, with five, so it takes time. And that can happen if all stakeholders in Myanmar are willing, have the same will to solve the problem. If not, it will be very difficult,” said Jokowi.

In the entire series of ASEAN Summits, there will also be events for various bilateral meetings between the leaders present.
