To promote the good outcomes of the ASEAN Chairmanship Year in 2020, Vietnam will continue to maintain its proactive and positive engagement and responsible contributions to the association's common affairs, while coordinating with Brunei to continue to implement priorities put forth by Vietnam in 2020 in association with ASEAN priorities in 2021, especially contents related to the bloc's response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the evaluation of the implementation of the ASEAN Charter, the building of the ASEAN Community’s Post-2025 Vision, and the promotion of ASEAN's role in sub-regional cooperation.

This is in addition to effectively responding to emerging challenges and strengthening the central role, position, and international voice of ASEAN.
