Vietnam, as chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2020, has presided over this year’s first meeting of the ASEAN Connectivity Coordinating Committee (ACCC).

The meeting was chaired by Ambassador Tran Duc Binh, head of Vietnam’s Permanent Mission to ASEAN, in Indonesia on Tuesday, according to the Vietnam News Agency.

At the meeting, delegates praised the ongoing implementation of the 2025 Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity (MPAC 2025), with 12 out of 15 initiatives in five strategic fields -- sustainable infrastructure, digital innovation, seamless logistics, regulatory excellence, and people mobility -- already underway.

They agreed that ASEAN should give priority to such projects as building data on commercial routes, establishing a dictionary on ASEAN open data, developing digital platforms, and enhancing vocational and human resources training.

Delegates also highlighted the need to popularize contents and benefits of MPAC 2025, encourage the involvement of ASEAN’s specialized agencies in the implementation of MPAC 2025 projects, and strengthen mechanisms to link MPAC 2025 with initiatives to connect the region with partner countries.

ASEAN is a political and economic organization whose members include Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The ACCC was established with the aim to supervise MPAC 2025 implementation and report to the ASEAN Coordinating Council and the ASEAN Summit.

The MPAC 2025 was adopted at the 28th ASEAN Summit in Vientiane, Laos in September 2016.
