Singapore is honoured to take on the Chairmanship of ASEAN in 2018. We extend a very warm welcome to all friends, colleagues and delegates.
ASEAN has come a long way since 1967. We realised the ASEAN Community in 2015 and celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2017. It is an exciting time for ASEAN as we embark on a new chapter. Ground-breaking technologies are discovered at an ever-faster-pace, bringing about disruptive effects as well as opportunities. United as one, ASEAN will navigate these challenges in a coordinated, integrated and effective manner to harness the opportunities and improve the lives and livelihoods of our peoples.
Singapore looks forward to working with ASEAN and our external partners to forge a Resilient and Innovative ASEAN.
