A Greater Height for ASEAN in 2011

ASEAN Secretary General (SG) Dr. Surin Pitsuwan said that Indonesia can bring the regional pact to reach new heights during its chairmanship in 2011, according to a statement released by the ASEAN secretariat here on Monday.

"With her own profile in the international arena, her credentials and credibility as an active player of the developing world and emerging economies, a rightful member of the G-20, Indonesia can bring ASEAN along in its engagement with the world and bring ASEAN to a new height," said Surin when he was invited to attend an Indonesia's cabinet meeting on Friday.

Surin also said that he expected Indonesia to adopt a proactive role in its leadership of ASEAN "an enhanced role of the Chair, " as he described it to Kabinet Indonesia Bersatu II (Second United Indonesia Cabinet).

"Indonesia has a weight, an international legitimacy and a global appeal to draw tremendous support and attention from around the world to the ASEAN community building efforts that we are all engaging in now," Surin added.

"The theme that Indonesia has chosen for its Chairmanship, ' ASEAN Community in a Global Community of Nations', has already implied Indonesia would be engaged, proactive and using the ASEAN platform to enhance ASEAN profile in the global arena," Surin said.

At the Cabinet meeting, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said his country will work closely with the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta to ensure success for Indonesia's Chairmanship of ASEAN in 2011.

"I do not want just the success of organizing the ASEAN Summits, related Summits and Ministerial Meetings," said the President, adding "but a meaningful and successful follow-ups with concrete outcomes well into the future."

He also stressed that Indonesia has traditionally given " milestones" to ASEAN and the international community, citing the 1955 Afro-Asian Conference in Bandung, the 1994 APEC Summit in Bogor and the 1976 and 2003 ASEAN Summits in Bali which had solidified ASEAN solidarity and transformed the region into an ASEAN Community.
