Under the theme “We Care, We Prepare, We Prosper” of Brunei Darussalam's upcoming ASEAN Chairmanship 2021, the Brunei Minister referred to some orientations and priorities, including the implementation of initiatives in response to Covid-19 and post-coronavirus recovery period which were adopted in 2020. 

He took the occasion to highlight the importance of building the ASEAN Community's Post-2025 Vision, enhancing multi-lateral cooperation and rules-based regional order and setting up people-centered initiatives. 

These priorities and initiatives will be established on the basis of the achievements that ASEAN reached in previous years, particularly under the Chair of Viet Nam in 2020, the Brunei’s diplomat confirmed. 

Deputy PM Pham Binh Minh will attend ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Retreat, which will be held virtually on January 21, at the invitation of Second Minister of Foreign Affairs of Brunei Darussalam Dato Erywan Pehin Yusof.
