A delegation of AFET Members traveled to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia and the seat of the ASEAN Secretariat, and to Hanoi in Vietnam from 20 to 24 February 2023. The main goal of the mission was to contribute to furthering the EU-ASEAN Strategic Partnership, in particular cooperation between the parliaments, and to enhancing bilateral relations with EU’s major partners in the region.

Members held meetings with government and parliament officials in Indonesia and in Vietnam to discuss global and regional security issues as well as to follow-up on the EU-ASEAN Summit of 14 December 2022 and the own-initiative-report of June 2022 on the 'EU and the security challenges in the Indo-Pacific'. Members also pursued dialogue with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which Indonesia is chairing in 2023.
