On 3-4 September 2020, SEAMEO SPAFA successfully held its 35th Governing Board Meeting (GBM) online. This was an unprecedented event as this was the first time SEAMEO SPAFA was holding its GBM via virtual means, as a result of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Over the two days of discussions, SEAMEO SPAFA had the pleasure of meeting its 11 Governing Board Members from across the Southeast Asian region – even if only virtually – to go over the Centre’s past (e.g. last fiscal year), present (e.g. current fiscal year) and future projects and activities (e.g. projected 3-year plan).
