PUTRAJAYA (Bernama) – The Foreign Affairs Ministry yesterday launched its dedicated website, http://asean2015.gov.my in conjunction with Malaysia’s assumption as Chairman of Asean 2015 from Jan 1.
The ministry in a statement Monday said, the web portal intended to provide extensive coverage, information, updates and news on important events that would take place in 2015 during the Chairmanship.
“This dedicated website is also designed to provide quick and easy access to essential information to assist Asean and other related member countries delegations, local and foreign media and other related agencies to undertake online registration for accreditation and issuance of security passes,” it said.
The statement further said, visual information in video format and photo gallery would also be made available.
The website would also function as an outreach platform to disseminate information on Asean and Malaysia’s Chairmanship to promote more awareness about the organisation and its various benefits to the Asean community, consistent with the overarching theme of Malaysia’s Chairmanship that is ‘People Centered Asean’.
