Kingdom to chair ASEAN during critical pandemic recovery period

With Cambodia poised to assume its ASEAN chairmanship next year from Vietnam, the Daniel K Inouye Asian-Pacific Center for Security Studies (APCSS) andย  the Asian Vision Institute (AVI) held a dialogue to discuss how the Kingdom can best prepare for the role.

Chairmanship of the ASEAN bloc is held on a rotating basis with each nation leading it every decade. Cambodia has chaired it twice, first in 2002 and then later in 2012.

โ€œWe are looking for a prosperous, healthy, secure and unified ASEAN because that is in our interest,โ€ said Melissa Brown, charge dโ€™affairs for the US Mission to ASEAN.

โ€œAs Chair, Cambodia will shepherd issues that have broad geo-politicial issues for the region, such as promoting a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, protecting the rule of law in the maritime space, fostering youth and women, as well as peace and security and upholding human rights across the Asia-Pacific,โ€ she added.

โ€œTaking on a successful chairmanship means taking the most pressing challenges head-on and adapting to new challenges that may divert the agenda from priorities.โ€
