“The Host Country Agreement sends an important message to the world about the importance that ASEAN member countries attach to ASEAN. The agreement demonstrates the important role that the Indonesian government plays in opening up and facilitating the work of ASEAN and the ASEAN Secretariat. “We very much appreciate the commitment of the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. In this regard, we welcome the conclusion and signing of this important agreement,” said Dr Surin Pitsuwan, Secretary General of ASEAN, after the signing. As part of its commitment to host the CTI-SBB and its commitment to support the coral reef protection areas with the highest marine biodiversity in the world, the Indonesian government has built a new CTI-SBB regional building and a CTI centre. This complex is located in Manado, at the historic location where the leaders of the six coral triangle countries gathered in 2009 for the ITC Summit and the World Ocean Conference. The Host Country Agreement is the main legal instrument that embodies Indonesia`s continued engagement and support to ASEAN as host of the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta. It defines the obligations and responsibilities of the parties, as well as the privileges and immunities granted by the Government of Indonesia to ASEAN, including the Secretariat, so that it can effectively carry out its functions and operations. In order to institutionalize this support, a host country agreement has been developed to address issues relating to the legal personality of the regional secretariat, the competences of both the Government of Indonesia and the regional secretariat, as well as other relevant issues. The signing of the Host Country Agreement took place in the Pancasila Building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the ASEAN Director General of Cooperation, Ambassador Jose Tavares (representing the Government of Indonesia) and the Executive Director of ASEAN-IPR, Ambassador Rezlan Ishar Jenie (representing ASEAN-IPR). Deputy Ministers of Foreign Affairs, officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, members of the ASEAN-DIPR Board of Directors and Advisory Council, officials of the ASEAN Secretariat and Permanent Representatives of ASEAN member countries participated in the event. .

With the entry into force of the ASEAN Charter in 2008, the Hosting Agreement replaces the previous one, concluded in 1979 and obtained following a series of discussions and consultations between ASEAN and Indonesia. Indonesia views ASEAN-DPI as an important institution to assist ASEAN in meeting the challenges of peace, stability and security in the region. . . .
