Dinner reception for leaders attending 17th ASEAN Summit

Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and his wife hosted a dinner to welcome leaders attending the 17th ASEAN Summit and related summits at the National Conference Centre in Hanoi on October 29.

PM Dung warmly welcomed kings, Government and State leaders, and heads of delegations attending the event, an important part of every ASEAN Summit.

He emphasised that this is an opportunity for delegates to meet and exchange ideas in a friendly atmosphere to help strengthen friendship, and promote mutual understanding.

PM Dung said he believes the welcome dinner will promote new views of the different cultures of each ASEAN country and a bridge towards solidarity in the region.
