ASEAN Leaders to Adopt Over 100 Outcome Documents

The ASEAN leaders who gather here in the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits and Related Summits from today until Nov. 13, 2022 will adopt over 100 outcome documents.

Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minster of the Kingdom of Cambodia,  said in his remarks at the opening ceremony of the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits and Related Summits this morning that during these meetings, the ASEAN leaders will adopt and note a long list of over 100 outcome documents to guide their actions and cooperation for the coming years.

As 2022 draws to a close, the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits and Related ASEAN Summits with our partners shall be instrumental in realising ASEAN’s 2022 key deliverables and priorities and mapping out our future cooperation directions, he said.

“I believe that not often mentioned, but our Motto ‘ASEAN: One Vision, One Identity, One Community’ still holds true to its values today. Let us focus on the common goal of mutual development for peace, stability and the betterment of the region. Our relationships here are not created by chance, but through years of hard work, commitment and perseverance,” the Premier underlined. “We must treasure and be grateful of what we have built, and therefore, maintaining our unity, solidarity and centrality is of utmost priority in order for our region to sustain and be resilient for what is to come.”.

Besides, Samdech Techo Hun Sen said the ASEAN leaders will issue the ASEAN Leaders’ Statement on the 55th Anniversary of ASEAN, which is complimented by two others – the ASEAN Leaders’ Vision Statement on ASEAN A.C.T: Addressing Challenges Together and the ASEAN Leaders’ Statement on ASEAN Connectivity Post-2025 Agenda to be adopted later today.
These policy guides affirm our resolve to building the future of ASEAN as a Community that is united, inclusive, resilient and rules-based; a Community abounds with opportunities, where all people enjoy seamless connectivity, equitable economic development, healthy environment and equal social protection; a Community that remains central to the evolving regional architecture, forging external partnerships based on mutual trust and respect for regional and global peace, security and sustainable growth, said Samdech Techo Hun Sen.
