The one-day event will emphasise on the intensification of joint efforts to prevent the pandemic, alongside drastic measures that each ASEAN member state is carying out.

Leaders of the 10-nation bloc will talk with their counterparts from the three partners namely China, the Republic of Korea, and Japan.
