The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted a seminar to promote the population of ASEAN Community through communication channels in Hanoi on April 18.



The event also provided ASEAN-related information for the media, making it easier for them to cover articles on specific benefits brought by the ASEAN Community, towards raising public awareness of the community’s importance.

At the seminar, delegates emphasised the role played by the communication circle in the work, saying that this is a crucial tool to introducing benefits of the ASEAN Community to the public.

Representatives from a number of ministries mentioned issues concerning intra-bloc economic and tourism cooperation, incentives from tariff commitments; connectivity within ASEAN; integration initiatives; mutual recognition agreements in specific sectors within the bloc; and migrant labour in ASEAN.-VNA
