Dr. Yoichi Nemoto, Director of AMRO, issued the following statement today regarding the completion of the signing of the AMRO Agreement:

“I welcome today’s completion of the signing of the AMRO Agreement. This marks a crucial milestone to advance the process of transforming our office into an international organization, thereby enabling our office to function effectively as an independent surveillance unit in the ASEAN+3 region.

Moving forward, our office will support all members’ efforts in expediting their respective domestic procedures to ratify, accept or approve the AMRO Agreement for its early entry-intoforce.

Our office will also continue working on the administrative preparation to ensure smooth and efficient transition to an international organization.”
