ASEAN - AIPA Interface
Was first initiated as an informal meeting in 2009 during the 14th ASEAN Summit. It was when the Chairmanship of ASEAN and concurrently the Presidency of AIPA as well as the position of AIPA Secretary General was held by Thailand. Since then, it has been conducted annually, except at 22nd ASEAN Summit in 2013.
Started in 2010, AIPA – ASEAN Interface was preceded by a Preparatory Meeting, where the Delegations of AIPA Member Parliaments deliberate, discuss and draft a message to be delivered at the Interface between Heads of Delegation of AIPA Member Parliaments and Heads of Government/State of ASEAN Member States. The latest AIPA – ASEAN Interface meeting was convened with cordiality and was well attended by the Speakers/Presidents of AIPA Member Parliaments and Heads of Government/State of ASEAN Member States on 29th April 2017 during the 30th ASEAN Summit in Manila, the Philippines.
