JAKARTA/YANGON (Bernama): The Initiative for Asean Integration (IAI) Task Force convened at Asean Headquarters on Tuesday for their 73rd Meeting, focusing on progress in regional integration and inclusive growth.

Chaired by the Permanent Representative of Myanmar to Asean, Ambassador Aung Myo Myint, the meeting included Timor-Leste’s Ambassador to Asean as an observer, according to the Asean Secretariat in a statement.

Key topics discussed include updates on 91 projects under the IAI Work Plan IV and strategies for narrowing development gap (NDG) under Laos’ ASEAN Chairmanship.
