ASEAN countries in Czech Republic foster bonds

An ASEAN family day held recently in the Czech Republic has promoted exchanges between the bloc’s people in service of the formation of a “people-centred” ASEAN.

The Czech Republic hosts the embassies of five member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), namely Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. 

In his remarks at the September 25 event, Thai Ambassador Narong Sasitorn said the ASEAN family day is important to pushing for stronger bonds among the bloc’s people when they will have a single community by the end of this year.
