The SPM brought together primarily those countries who have been involved directly in SEACAP, but also a number of countries who have expressed an interest in participating in SEACAP in the future such as Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Bhutan.
The key objectives of this first SPM were:
a) Refresh the understanding and purpose of SEACAP;
b) Share experiences from the implementation of SEACAP projects;
c) Review achievements and progress to date;
d) Consider future direction and priorities for SEACAP.
Under this initiative, the Ministry of Rural Development of the Royal Government of Cambodia and the Cambodian National Community of Transport Practitioners hosted a one and a half day meeting which was held on 14 and 15 of June 2006 at Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s Capital City.
