At the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh stressed that the new book, composed by the ASEAN 2020 National Committee, is in the framework of Vietnam’s ASEAN Chairmanship 2020.
It aims to give readers an insight into Vietnam’s 25-year membership in ASEAN.
The book contains memories and stories about Vietnam’s ASEAN membership during the past 25 years told by former leaders of the Party and State, senior domestic and senior diplomats.
The book also has objective assessments of Vietnam’s rising position and positive contributions to the bloc over the past 25 years.
The authors also highlight that Vietnam’s decision to join ASEAN has been right and smart as it has benefited largely from joining ASEAN over the past 25 years.By An Nhien
