The Diplomat: How Will Vietnam’s 2020 ASEAN Chairmanship Play Out?

Given its increasingly active role in ASEAN, Vietnam will have to address the full range of regional issues and this will be a great challenge as Vietnam officially takes over ASEAN's chairmanship in 2020, said an article on The Diplomat.

The article How Will Vietnam's 2020 ASEAN Chairmanship Play Out? posted on Friday said that Vietnam's taking over ASEAN's annually rotating chairmanship from Thailand marks another step toward its assumption of the role in 2020. According to the article, Vietnam's 2020 chairmanship will continue its tasks, particularly given the fact that it also marks 25 years of Vietnam's membership in ASEAN as well as the midpoint mark between the ASEAN Community in 2015 and the post-2015 ASEAN Community Vision 2025.
