The United Architects of the Philippines joined the 94th Asean Coordinating Committee on Services on October 21 to 25, 2019 which was hosted by the government of the Republic of the Philippines. It has been more than five years when the Philippines last hosted these simultaneous meetings of Asean regulators, professionals and its associations coming from the accountancy, engineering, architecture, surveying and health-care professions. The attendees to these meetings discuss various issues of concerns, including the mutual recognition arrangement (MRA) for the various professional services.
It may be noted that the ASEAN Coordinating Committee on Services (CCS) established an Ad-Hoc Expert Group on Mutual Recognition Arrangements with the objective of realising framework agreements on mutual recognition for identified priority professional services. CCS decided
to adopt the sectorial approach in developing mutual recognition arrangements for the identified professional services in ASEAN.
