The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the European Union
(EU) will enhance cooperation on promoting and protecting the rights of
women and children.

This was determined during a
working visit of a delegation of the ASEAN Commission on the Promotion
and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC) to the EU
headquarters in Brussels from February 18-22.

In the framework of the visit, the delegation held discussions with
senior EU officials for human rights, democracy and human development
issues to exchange experience and policies in promoting women and
children’s rights and seek for cooperation between the two regions on
the field .

The visit also permitted the ACWC
delegation to better understand the EU institutions, mechanisms,
instruments and policy priorities relating to the issue.-VNA
