Vietnam assumed the role of the Chair of the Committee of Permanent Representatives to ASEAN (CPR) during its 16th meeting in Jakarta on December 13.
Social affairs will be an important issue of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as its socio-cultural community in 2020 when Vietnam serves as Chair of the ASEAN, a Vietnamese official has said.
The chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for 2020 that Vietnam officially assumed on November 4 will be a chance for the country to affirm its role and stature while further showing itself as an active member of the ASEAN Community.
The second meeting of the 39th ASEANAPOL Organizing Committee was held in Hanoi. The 39th ASEANAPOL Conference, to take place from September 17 to 19, is expected to welcome 250 delegates from 27 countries and international organizations.
