In addition to attending the 38th and 39th Asean summits, the prime minister will participate in meetings with Asean's dialogue partners, namely China, Japan, the Republic of Korea, India, Australia, the United States, Russia and New Zealand.

Discussions at the summits will focus on promoting cooperation to address Covid-19 and its impact, post-pandemic recovery, Asean community building, as well as key regional and global developments.
