HA NOI (VNS) — The ASEAN Viet Nam portal has begun at three official domains aseanvietnam.vn, vietnamasean.vn and asean.vietnam.vn.
The portal is designed to provide a database featuring ASEAN's management and the activities of the ASEAN Information and Communications Steering Committee.
It will also introduce ASEAN member states and serve as an archive for the bloc.
Addressing the launch ceremony in Ha Noi yesterday, Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Bac Son said ASEAN will promote communications as well as raise public awareness to develop the grouping into a community of peace, stability, development and prosperity, thus connecting nations together for a culture of diversity and rich identity.
The portal has English and Vietnamese versions and various features including ASEAN introduction, news and events, information search, community pillars, library, Q&A, contacts, and ASEAN Window.
The event was to celebrate the upcoming birth of the ASEAN Community and Viet Nam's 20-year membership to the bloc. — VNS
