With only a few years before ASEAN achieves its Community Vision 2025, it is important that we continue to uphold ASEAN centrality and unity so that all of ASEAN moves forward harmoniously into the future together.
His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam said this in a message to mark ASEAN Day, which falls today.
The monarch added, “This can be realised through close cooperation and coordination where we are able to address challenges and take advantage of opportunities that may arise for our mutual benefit.
“This year marks the 55th anniversary since the establishment of ASEAN, and ASEAN Day marks the occasion to celebrate our achievements and contemplate the future of the association as we strive to realise a people-oriented, people centred ASEAN.”
“Despite the challenges the region faced over the years, from the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to geopolitical competition, ASEAN will continue to work closely with its member states and external partners to advance the region’s recovery and continued development for the peace and prosperity of all its people,” the monarch added.
