Addressing the significant role of the Vietnamese Delegation to ASEAN, Vietnamese Ambassador to ASEAN Nguyen Hai Bang said that from the beginning of 2023 when Indonesia assumed its role as ASEAN Chair, Vietnam has prepared thoroughly to be able to participate in and effectively contribute to all ASEAN activities.
Tasked with negotiating several documents of this meeting, the Vietnamese Delegation to ASEAN has actively contributed to initiatives proposed by Vietnam.
The AMM-56 and related meetings, said Bang, are opportunities for participating countries to focus on discussing current issues such as economic recovery, trade, investment, and supply chain stabilization; and responding to such challenges as climate change, the development gap, the environment, diseases, energy security, and food security.
At the four-day high-level event, ASEAN and its partners will discuss regional and global situations, to further affirm the strategic role and value of ASEAN-led mechanisms in promoting dialogue and cooperation. This year's forum is for countries to exchange views and contribute to improving mutual understanding, narrowing differences, and fostering trust.
