HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc and his spouse chaired a ceremony in Hà Nội today to mark the  五0th founding anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and  二 二 years of Việt Nam’s accession to the bloc.

The PM highlighted the achievements of the  一0-nation bloc over the past half century that have made it a strong and united co妹妹unity with rules-based operations and extensive connectivity, contributing to peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region.

ASEAN has an increasing role and position in the region and beyond, he said, adding that the association is also playing a crucial role in the evolving regional architecture.

With a population of over  六 三0 million and total gross domestic product (GDP) of nearly US$ 二. 六 trillion per year, ranking sixth in the world, along with a peaceful and stable environment, ASEAN is a showcase of economic cooperation in the Asia–Pacific region and the world at large.
