Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh made the above statement at his reception for ASEAN Secretary-General Lim Jock Hoi in Ha Noi on August 27.

ASEAN has grown significantly since Vietnam assumed the Chair in 2010 but the bloc is also facing numerous challenges, thus promoting ASEAN solidarity, unity and centrality is a top task to help the bloc overcome challenges and adapt to fast and complicated changes, emphasized Minh.

ASEAN should step up efforts to accelerate intra-connectivity, particularly in trade and investment facilitation and conclusion of talks on Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) on time, he added.

As Vietnam will undertake the UNSC non-permanent membership in 2020-2021 tenure, Minh said Vietnam will actively work with other ASEAN countries to foster partnership between the United Nations and regional organizations, including ASEAN.

Meanwhile, Lim highly valued Vietnam’s preparations for the ASEAN Chairmanship with concrete roadmap and steps, pledging to closely cooperate with Vietnam to well prepare for the role.
