The Asia-Oceania VLBI Group for Geodesy and Astrometry (AOV) was established in 2014 as a subgroup of the International VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry (IVS) in order to foster regional collaboration of VLBI. AOV coordinates six regional sessions in a year on regular basis by sharing resources of scheduler, stations, and correlators. AOV members are also enhancing their close collaboration by sharing information of recent activities in several face-to-face meetings. Successful broadband VLBI experiments with telescopes in Australia and Japan in August 2016 marked the start of VGOS in this region under the collaboration of AOV. We talk on the recent activities of the AOV.
