European Chess Union signed a Memorandum of co-operation
with the ASEAN Chess Confederation
The Memorandum of understanding was made on the 30th of January 2019 between ASEAN CHESS CONFEDERATION (“ACC” – Prospero A. Pichay Jr. – President of the ACC) and EUROPEAN CHESS UNION (“ECU” = Zurab Azmaiparashvili – President of the ECU).
The overarching purpose of this MOU is to provide a framework for cooperation between the Parties that would be mutually beneficial and it is to precede a longer-term contract arrangement in which working documents and deliverables relating to particular projects or undertakings towards cooperation are produced.
The guiding principle behind the MOU is mutual friendship, trust and respect and a common desire to advance the interests of chess in Europe and the ASEAN region.
The scope of the cooperation between the Parties includes the organisation of a periodic chess match between Europe and the ASEAN member nations, technical cooperation including best practices in the organisation of chess events and the sharing of knowledge and experience in developing chess academies and chess in education.
