The 16th ASEAN Summit is scheduled to convene on 8 and 9 April 2010 in Ha Noi, Viet Nam. Preceded by a series of preparatory meetings of senior officials early this week, the Summit which would bring together the ASEAN Heads of Government/State, would also involve meetings involving the Ministers responsible for the ASEAN Economic and Socio-Cultural Community Councils as well as the Coordinating Council.

The agenda of the Summit include the implementation of the ASEAN Charter and the Roadmap for an ASEAN Community 2009–2015; ASEAN Connectivity, climate change and other regional and international issues.

The 16th ASEAN Summit will see the inauguration of the ASEAN Commission on Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children by the ASCC Minister. The ACWC is further expected to meet and get to work immediately after its inauguration.

An ASEAN Statement on Joint Response to Climate Change and an ASEAN Statement on Sustained Recovery and Development are also expected to be adopted.

The Summit is the first out of the two Summits hosted this year by Viet Nam, as the current ASEAN Chair. Following the entry into force of the ASEAN Charter, ASEAN will now convene Summits twice a year. At the next Summit in October 2010, ASEAN Leaders will meet their counterparts from the East Asia Summit countries, namely China, Japan, the Republic of Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand.
