HCMC – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is leading a high-level delegation to participate in the 43rd ASEAN Summit and related high-level meetings in Jakarta, Indonesia. The ASEAN Summit, hosted by Indonesian President Joko Widodo from September 4 to 7, has the theme of “ASEAN Matters: Epicentrum of Growth.”The ASEAN Summit takes place against a backdrop of global uncertainties, with projections of positive economic growth but at an unstable pace. Southeast Asia remains a nexus of economic growth and strategic competition, although some nations have experienced declines in exports. As the ASEAN Chair in 2023, Indonesia has been actively promoting its priorities and initiatives to stimulate ASEAN’s development. Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh’s participation aligns with Vietnam’s foreign policy principles of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation, development, diversification, and multilateralism.
