Speaking at a dialogue held in Ha Noi on December 23 entitled “Driving ASEAN Forward: From Thailand’s chairmanship in 2019 to Vietnam’s cohesive and responsive ASEAN 2020,” former Deputy Foreign Minister Pham Quang Vinh said taking over Thailand’s chairmanship, Vietnam will focus on building the community, connecting regional infrastructure and developing ties with partners.

“The theme of ASEAN 2020 ‘Cohesive and Responsive’ shows our wish to have an ASEAN standing firm to impacts of the regional and global situations,” said Vinh, who is also former leader of Vietnam’s ASEAN senior official meeting (SOM) delegation.

He said Vietnam wants ASEAN to unite in all fields including institutions, economy and people, from which ASEAN can reach a common view on global and regional issues.

While highlighting Vietnam’s five priorities during its chairmanship of ASEAN in 2020, Vinh also mentioned the country’s non-permanent membership in the UN Security Council in 2020-2021, noting that Vietnam will combine the two missions and promote the sharing of experience between the international agency and the regional bloc, thus contributing to promoting a peaceful, stable environment in the region, advocating multilateralism and building a law-based ASEAN regional structure.
