Council of Ministers (COM)

The highest authority of the Association rests with the Council of (Foreign) Ministers (COM), which meets annually or more often, as collectively decided.

The COM formulates policy, reviews progress on co-operation and makes decisions on new areas of co-operation. It also deliberates on the establishment of additional mechanisms and Specialized Agencies, and on matters of general interest. The Council of Ministers elects a Chair and a Vice Chair of the Association, each for a period of two years.
