The Southeast Asia Ministers of Education Organization[1] (SEAMEO) is an intergovernmental organization of the eleven Southeast Asian countries, which was formed on 30 November 1965 by Lao PDR, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and the then Republic of South Vietnam.[2] SEAMEO aims to promote regional cooperation in the fields of education, science and culture.


SEAMEO organised the SEAMEO Mathematics Olympiad, a regional competition for young mathematicians.[3]
