At the Ministry’s regular press conference on July 21, Deputy Spokesperson Hang reviewed the 27-year journey since Vietnam became an official member of ASEAN on July 28, 1995, affirming that Vietnam's admission to the bloc marked an important milestone in the country's extensive regional and international integration.

Vietnam has promoted extensive integration in politics, economy, diplomacy and all other aspects of life with other countries and organisations around the world, she said.

Vietnam and other member countries have actively built the ASEAN Community from politics, economy, culture and society, while especially giving priority to strengthening ASEAN connectivity.

During the process, Vietnam and other ASEAN members have expanded relations with many partners around the world, Deputy Spokesperson Hang said, adding that more and more countries worldwide want to become partners of ASEAN.
