Hanoi (VNA) - The Hanoi People's Committee has issued a plan on promoting information and communication activities on ASEAN in the 2021-2025 period, with a vision to 2030, aiming to effectively implement the Government's action plan in this work.

The plan is also to raise awareness of agencies, organisations and people about the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) in line with the scheme on developing and implementing a plan to realise the ASCC's goals to 2025.

Communications will focus on issues related to important political-diplomatic activities, investment and business, free trade agreements in the ASEAN region, development of human resources, labour - employment, digital economy, digital transformation, education, environmental protection, sustainable development, sub-regional cooperation, collaboration in response to COVID-19 and promote post-pandemic recovery within ASEAN, and between Hanoi and regional countries.

Information on common policies and agreements of ASEAN in the all three pillars of the ASEAN Community, practical stories, models and typical characters about substantive benefits that the ASEAN Community bring to Vietnam and its business community as well as Hanoi people, and Vietnam's participation in the all three pillars of the ASEAN Community will be also promoted.

The plan will also spotlight the importance of ASEAN for Vietnam, as well as the position, role, contribution and imprint of Hanoi and Vietnam in the process of  participation in ASEAN, especially in building a cohesive and adaptive ASEAN Community, which takes a leading role in regional affairs.
