Success of Italy’s candidature as ASEAN Development Partner

The 53rd meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the member countries of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) today approved Italy’s candidature as Development Partner of the Association.

This is an objective for which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has worked hard this year, despite the difficult conditions dictated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Italy has always supported ASEAN’s work – a positive example of multilateralism based on respect for international law – to ensure stability, security, and prosperity in the region.

As a Development Partner, Italy is ready to offer its contribution of experience and expertise in many areas: connectivity, fight against climate change and sustainable development, natural disaster management, protection of cultural heritage, strengthening the role of women, peacekeeping and limitation of the COVID-19 spreading.
