I would like to extend my greetings and a warm welcome to all regulators in the Asia Pacific Region and I look forward to the activities of the East Asia Pacific Infrastructure Regulators Forum as the network moves into its 10th year.
EAPIRF is undergoing a transition. The Executive Committee met in Manila on 10 January 2013 for the first time since the Annual General Meeting in Bangkok in October 2011. The Executive Committee has decided to develop the forum as a knowledge network to provide training, information and other support to regulators in the region. We will no longer pursue a membership fee structure but open EAPIRF to all regulators and affiliated public and academic organisations who wish to access the services of the forum.
To commence this transition phase, EAPIRF is planning on delivering its Core Course on Regulation twice in 2013; once in the S.E. Asia region and once in the Pacific region. It also is preparing for an inaugural Annual Current Issues Conference that will bring together regional regulators and some of the top international practitioners and specialists together with other stakeholders including the corporate and finance sectors to discuss current issues in infrastructure regulation. We are tentatively planning the inaugural Current Issues Conference for January 2014.
Since I am Chair of EAPIRF in an Acting capacity, I am looking forward to the elections this year and the transfer of the Chair’s responsibilities. I encourage everyone to think about active participation in EAPIRF and encourage regulators to stand for election as an Executive Committee member. I would like to extend the Forum’s thanks and appreciation to the two former Chairs, Mr. Irzal Djamal, the Jakarta Water Regulator and the Vice Chair and Acting Chair, Mr. Carmine Piantedosi, the CEO of the Utilities Regulatory Authority of Vanuatu for their service to EAPIRF.
I would also like to extend the thanks of the Executive Committee to the World Bank and AusAID for their ongoing support. With their assistance, EAPIRF has secured the services of Pitlock & Associates, a Philippine based consultancy to support its training and other operations. Mr. Michael Pitlock has been involved in the Core Course since 2006.
I look forward to an active and fruitful 2013 and a successful transition to a self sustaining knowledge network for infrastructure regulators in the Asia Pacific Region.
EAPIRF is currently accepting membership applications from all regulatory agencies in the East Asia and Pacific Region (Core Members) and other interested parties (Affiliate Members).
