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.”
