A Steering Committee meeting was held on the afternoon of the November 28. After reviewing the previous day’s forum, discussing was had about the call for next year’s new projects, the writing of formal articles of incorporation, project extensions and the general management of ASEAN IVO.
It was proposed by the secretariat that, considering NICT's budget and a steady yen, to create and advance projects, they should maintain the number of projects at 5 and reduce the project duration from 3 years to 2. This was passed without objection. The secretariat also proposed that, for the benefit of smoother management, ASEAN IVO should have formal articles of incorporation. Based on a proposal by the secretariat, members would debate the articles and it was hoped that there would be a speedy resolution.
Lastly, the next Steering Committee meeting was to be held on March 12, 2019 in Bangkok, where next fiscal year’s projects would be decided. It was also decided to host 2019’s forum in Manila, the Philippines.
