Recovery to dominate Asean talks

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will press to promote and strengthen Asean's response to the Covid-19 pandemic and build a sustainable post-pandemic future at the 38th and 39th Asean and related summits this week.

Gen Prayut will participate in 14 meetings under the Asean framework via teleconference from today until Thursday, according to government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana.

Among key agendas the PM will discuss at the summits and related meetings are the joint efforts in responding to the spread and impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and in rehabilitating and building a sustainable post-Covid-19 future using the Bio-Circular-Green Economy Model as a key instrument to realise sustainable development.

According to Mr Thanakorn, Thailand will also provide support on promoting cooperation to address the pandemic and its impacts between Asean and its dialogue partners.

This also included peace and security building to help the region keep up with geopolitical challenges.
