Cambodian Minister of Foreign Affairs Prak Sokhonn told a recent workshop on Cambodia’s ASEAN Chairmanship in 2022 hosted by the Yusof Ishak Institute that the retreat will be the first major ministerial meeting to deliberate the realisation of decisions and plans agreed on last year, and a chance to discuss new initiatives that will further advance the building of the ASEAN Community./.
