“Asean will be carrying out these priority areas in 2019 in the Asean community building process and work towards creating a more resilient and people-centred Asean Community.
“We will also intensify relations with external partners for mutual prosperity,” the press release stated.
As the rotating chairman of Asean this year, Thailand has adopted the theme Advancing Partnership for Sustainability, the statement said.
