The roadmap, Practical Cooperation Areas (PCA), was agreed at the 2nd Meeting of the ASEAN-Turkey Joint Sectoral Cooperation Committee (AT-JSCC) at the ASEAN Secretariat.

Both sides expressed strong commitment to effectively implement the PCA to further substantiate the partnership.

For this purpose, a dedicated fund to finance future ASEAN-Turkey cooperation projects has also been announced.

The AT-JSCC was co-chaired by Deputy Secretary-General for the ASEAN Political-Security Community Department Hoang Anh Tuan and Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to ASEAN Mahmut Erol Kılıç, and was attended by members of the Committee of Permanent Representatives to ASEAN and a number of Turkish delegates.
