SAARC programming committee session begins


KATHMANDU: The Fifty-seventh Session of the Programming Committee of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) commenced on Thursday at the SAARC Secretariat in Kathmandu.
Comprising Heads of SAARC Divisions from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs or National Focal Points of the Member States of SAARC, the Programming Committee is a Charter Body of SAARC.
On the occasion, Shanker Das Bairagi, Foreign Secretary of Nepal, and Chairman of the SAARC Standing Committee said that SAARC has become a well networked, a widely recognized and an established regional body in its 35 years of operation.
“Regional cooperation is one of the priorities of Nepal’s foreign policy. As a founding member and current Chair, Nepal’s commitment to the principles and objectives of SAARC is unflinching,” Bairagi argued.
He also expressed the hope that the Member States will arrive at a consensus to convene the Nineteenth SAARC Summit at an early date.
Addressing the Inaugural Session, Amjad Hussain B. Sial, Secretary General of SAARC, briefly reviewed the progress made by SAARC during 2019. “We should continue to work strenuously to achieve the coveted objectives enshrined in the Charter, as well as the goal of the South Asian Economic Union (SAEU), as envisioned by our leaders,” he said.
The two-day Session of the Programming Committee also brings together the Heads of SAARC Specialized Bodies and SAARC Regional Centres. The Programming Committee last met at the SAARC Secretariat in Kathmandu on 11-12 December 2018, it is said.
