JAKARTA — The response to global issues can only be achieved successfully through a global, all-people approach and promoting multilateralism, ensuring fairness and justice, said Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính at the 13th ASEAN-UN Summit on Thursday in Jakarta. The Prime Minister emphasised the need for coordination to implement the roadmap towards ASEAN Community Vision 2025 and the UN Agenda on Sustainable Development towards 2030. He also proposed UN support Việt Nam in the implementation of the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) and the transition to a circular economy. Under this framework, the ASEAN-Australia High-Level Dialogue on Climate Change and Energy Transition co-chaired by Australia, Việt Nam and Laos is expected to be held later this year in Hà Nội. Lao Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone announced the theme of the ASEAN Year 2024: "Enhancing Connectivity and Resilience".
