The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on August 8 organized a flag raising ceremony on the occasion of the 51st founding anniversary of ASEAN (August 8, 1967). 

The event was attended by Deputy PM, FM Pham Binh Minh, leaders from the MFA, the Ministries of Industry and Trade and Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, Vietnamese Ambassadors to ASEAN nations and Viet Nam’s Permanent Representative to ASEAN. 

Speaking at the event, Deputy PM Minh asserted that 51 years ago, ASEAN leaders laid the groundwork for a prosperous and peaceful ASEAN Community. 

Established three years ago, each member in the ASEAN Community is making efforts in realizing the strategic tasks of the Declaration on the ASEAN Community Vision 2025 to ensure long-term peace, security and self-reliance with dynamic, competitive and integrated economy and a community based on strong awareness about cohesion and common identity. 

ASEAN has been ranked among top dynamic economies with the market scale of more than 630 million people and the total GDP of around US$2,600 billion. 

For Viet Nam, ASEAN is a priority in its diplomatic policy, asserted Mr. Minh, adding that 23 years joining of ASEAN has made crucial marks in the nation’s international and regional integration process. 

The same occasion, the Deputy PM thanked country members and international and regional partners for their support in establishing the ASEAN community.
