Message from the Executive Director

Dear Esteemed Visitors,

It is my great honor to warmly welcome you on behalf of the ASEAN Regional Mine Action Center (ARMAC).

As the first woman to serve as Executive Director of ARMAC, I am profoundly honored by this opportunity. My appointment marks a pivotal moment not only for ARMAC but for the wider mine action sector within ASEAN. This achievement reflects our region’s dedication to promoting inclusivity, diversity, and gender equality in leadership positions.

ARMAC is a fundamental pillar of ASEAN’s collective efforts to combat the humanitarian challenges presented by landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW). Inspired by the ASEAN Charter’s principles and the spirit of regional cooperation, we are committed to aiding the national mine action authorities of ASEAN Member States in their critical work to alleviate the dangers posed by these lethal threats.

Our mission extends beyond clearance efforts; it includes a comprehensive strategy aimed at fostering peace, stability, and resilience across the region. Through our initiatives, we endeavor to provide vital Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE), support for victims of landmines and ERW, and enhance collaboration among stakeholders at every level.
At ARMAC, we pledge to maintain the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and ethics in everything we do. We acknowledge the significance of collaboration and partnership in realizing our collective objectives, and we are eager to join forces with governments, international organizations, civil society, and other stakeholders to amplify our impact.

As you explore our website, I invite you to delve into the abundance of information and resources we offer. Whether you are a policymaker, humanitarian worker, donor, or a concerned citizen, your participation and support are crucial in propelling our mission forward.

Together, let’s tirelessly work towards a safer, more peaceful future for all individuals in ASEAN.

– Thank you –
