Germany’s Junge Welt newspaper on June 27 said the focus of the summit is seeking measures to recover the economy in the post-pandemic period and increase cooperation with ASEAN partners.

According to the newspaper, at the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc expressed his desire that the event would create an opportunity for ASEAN member states to reaffirm their solidarity, political will, and determination to overcome the current challenges and move forward.

He also held that ASEAN countries have actively shared information and experience and coordinated together to curb the disease, adding that ASEAN will expand and strengthen equal and win-win cooperation with its partners.

The PM underlined the bloc’s strong commitment to economic liberalization and integration, striving to finalize the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) as soon as possible, it added.
