Bohol to host 3rd ASEAN meeting

Bohol has been primed to be a top destination for conferences, as the province primes to host another meeting in relation to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) later this month.

The third meeting will be a conclave of a technical working group on ASEAN taxation initiatives, said a source from the Capitol.

Acting provincial administrator Mitchel John Boiser confirmed the reports and told the Tribune via a text message the meeting will be held from October 23 to 25.

Boiser said like the two previous meetings, the meetings will be held in Panglao.

This early, security forces will be again called upon to arrange for the security plans for the event.

In previous meetings, not less than 3,000 personnel were deployed to secure the delegates and to keep the peace while the meetings were going on.

This year, Panglao has hosted two ASEAN meetings and the 34-nation Asia Cooperation Dialogue spearheaded by the Energy Department.

It is also expected there would be no-fly and no-sail zones implemented near the meeting venue.
