Meeting of the Council of Ministers

DILI, 03 july 2024 (TATOLI) – On wednesday, the Council of Ministers approved a resolution to contribute US$200,000 to the ASEAN Technical Secretariat.

Thus, the Technical Secretariat of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Jakarta will receive US$200,000 from Timor-Leste to support its logistical and administrative activities.

The proposal was presented by the Vice-Minister for ASEAN Affairs, Milena Rangel.

This contribution comes as part of Timor-Leste’s ASEAN Accession Roadmap, in which the country has to prepare a financial scheme to meet all the financial obligations, including the costs of attending and hosting ASEAN meetings, contributions to the annual operating budget of the ASEAN Secretariat and all other funds that require mandatory annual contributions, all based on the principle of equitable sharing between the organization’s member states.
