HA NOI (VNS)— The 47th Meeting of the ASEAN Committee on Culture and Information (ASEAN-COCI), the annual meeting that evaluates and ratifies all co-operative projects in the domain, was officially kicked off in Ha Noi yesterday.

The three-day meeting, with the participation of ASEAN members and dialogue countries, will review the effectiveness of on-going projects and approve new co-operative projects proposed by ASEAN nations.

Nguyen Van Tinh, chairman of the National ASEAN-COCI, said that before the meeting started, the ASEAN-COCI Sub-committee on Culture had finalised a draft work plan on co-operation in culture and arts with China, as well as a cultural flagship project in the period of 2013-15 with Brunei and Malaysia.

He said the meeting would be a chance for Viet Nam to show the ASEAN community that it was capable of taking the role of ASEAN Secretary General in the 2013-17 term.

The ASEAN-COCI, established in 1978, has twice held its meetings in Viet Nam.
