SEAMEO College Strategic Dialogue for Education Ministers (SDEM)
Bangkok, Thailand – Education ministers and high-level education officials of the 11 countries of Southeast Asia which compose the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) will convene on 13 September 2014 at the Landmark Mekong Riverside Hotel, Vientiane, Lao PDR to discuss education agenda for the next decade.
Dubbed as “Strategic Dialogue of Education Ministers” or SDEM, the one-day meeting of the Southeast Asian education ministers aims to yield a more dynamic and forward-looking regional policy development process through a dialogue on the Post-2015 education agenda for Southeast Asia.
Expected to be attended by more than 50 key officials from the ministries of education of the 11 SEAMEO member countries, the SDEM will revisit the efforts and achievements of the grouping of the Southeast Asia countries on the education goals set under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Education For All (EFA) Goals. Discussions will then tackle a SEAMEO-focused education agenda which will anchor on existing global and regional discussions on Post-2015 education, as well as highlight unique needs of Southeast Asia particularly in the pursuit of continuous development of human resource development in the region, and in support of the ASEAN Community.
