AP-PLAT Framework for Action 2023-2025

Proposing the creation for collaboration opportunities for AP-PLAT in FY2023, AP-PLAT outlined the priority issues in the "AP-PLAT Framework for Action 2023-2025" and suggested specific activities envisioned for FY2023 to explore collaboration, with a particular emphasis on these areas. These activities include organizing a progress meeting, a hybrid plenary meeting, and events at the APAN Forum to develop an "Activity Plan for FY 2024" and "Action Plan 2023-2025.”

While the specifics of the collaboration are to be discussed at the progress meeting, future proposals for FY2023 emerged from discussions held during the plenary meeting. For details of that were mentioned in the discussion, please see the meeting report.
