Asian Pacific Region

Where we work

OMEP is an international non profit, civil society organization that works all over the world. Its National Committees are active in more than 60 countries around the world.

At present, OMEP is working in 5 Regions, each one chaired by a Regional Vice President appointed at the World Assembly for a three-year (3-year) period, which can be renewed once.

Each National Committee belongs to a Region of OMEP: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America and the Caribbean, and Latin America.

Regional Assemblies are held at least once a year, comprising members of the National Committees of the Region concerned, upon convening with the Regional Vice President. These meetings are aimed at defining the programmes and projects of the Region in accordance with the Strategic Plan approved at the World Assembly and also reviewing the work of the Regions and determining future activities.

The OMEP Vice President of the Asia-Pacific Region is Sandie Wong asiapacificvp@omepworld.org

At the moment, there are 12 National Committees and 1 Preparatory Committee: Australia, China, China-Hong Kong, Iran, Japan, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pacific Island Nations, Pakistan, Philippines (Prép. Com.), Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand.

The Asia-Pacific Region is in or near the Western Pacific Ocean. Asia-Pacific includes South, East, Southeast Asia, as well as Oceania. With more than 23 countries and 14 main languages, there is a huge cultural richness and big economic differences.
