This August 8th marks the 49th birthday of the formation of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), an important milestone for the rapidly expanding relationship among the member states.
The anniversary offers us an opportunity to reflect on the evolution of ASEAN relations and consider new ideas and initiatives to strengthen, enrich and deepen our future, says the Ministry of Information and Communications.
To celebrate the event, the Ministry in collaboration with the Thua Thien Hue Department of Information and Communicationsis organizing an exhibition that will celebrate ASEANs history to date.
The exhibition will run in Hue from July 28th to August 1st, inclusive, and showcase more than 300 photos, and nearly 100 news reports and other documents that tell of significant events and track ASEANs history to date.
We hope that the project will be an important and useful contribution to strengthening the cultural and ties of friendship among ASEAN members, says the Ministry, as well as be a valuable public-diplomacy, research and education resource./.
