PIA Press Release

First ASEAN DSG for community and corporate affairs takes oath of office

ASEAN Secretariat, Jakarta (16 December) -- The first Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for Community and Corporate Affairs (DSG CCA) took his oath of office yesterday at the ASEAN Secretariat. H.E. Bagas Hapsoro had earlier assumed office on 7 December 2009.

DSG Bagas will assist the Secretary-General of ASEAN in managing the CCA Department of the ASEAN Secretariat and in ensuring that the Secretariat has the systems, procedures and resources required to fulfil its roles and mandates in building the ASEAN Community and in the implementation of the ASEAN Charter.

The CCA Department performs a range of core corporate support functions, such as human resource and financial management, administration and information technology. It also provides a range of other supporting analytical services to operational areas, including the media and communications, outreach and legal functions.

DSG Bagas was selected by a panel comprising the Secretary-General of ASEAN and representatives of all ASEAN Member States in September 2009. His appointment was approved by the 5th ASEAN Coordinating Council in October 2009.

Before his appointment as DSG CCA, DSG Bagas was the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Indonesia to Lebanon. He was also the Director for ASEAN Dialogue Partner & Inter-Regional Cooperation at the Department of Foreign Affairs of Indonesia.

In accordance with the ASEAN Charter, there are now four DSGs. Two DSGs are nominated by ASEAN Member States based on alphabetical rotation for a non-renewable term of three years and two DSGs are openly recruited based on merit for a three-year term which may be renewed for a further three years.
