Speaking at the opening ceremony of a virtual international symposium in Hanoi, he further said Vietnam has contributed to the creation of ASEAN milestones such as realizing the goals of establishing a bloc with all the 10 Southeast Asian countries as members and the ASEAN Community, building ASEAN Charter, and promoting the central role and international position of ASEAN.

Over the past 25 years, Vietnam has witnessed important changes of the association from a humble beginning to the most successful regional cooperation organization for peace, stability and prosperity in the region, as well as an important partner of global powers, he added.

Former Deputy Prime Minister Vu Khoan said Vietnam's entry in ASEAN has eventually brought win-win benefits. For ASEAN, it was the first step to bring together all the 10 Southeast Asian nations, paving the way to eliminate suspicions and confrontation and turn to peace and cooperation. For Vietnam, this was the first step to integrate into the world, he added.
