UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim and Thai Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will send pre-recorded messages to the forum.

The forum, themed "Building a Fast-Growing, Sustainable, People-Centered ASEAN Community", is expected to create a platform for stakeholders to contribute ideas and initiatives on ASEAN's future vision, said Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Do Hung Viet.

This is a forum exclusively for ASEAN, of ASEAN, and for its people, where all stakeholders will share new initiatives to help ASEAN leaders devise strategies and visions for the group in the coming time, helping to bring practical benefits to people, said Do.

The forum is one of the biggest multilateral diplomatic events hosted by Viet Nam this year, demonstrating the country's desire to contribute more to regional cooperation and promote its core role in regional and international collaboration./.
