The ministers praised the commission’s efforts in implementing the 2016-2020 work plan, saying they have approved the work plan for 2021-2025 and the 2021 priority programme of AICHR.

They urged the commission to better its performance in promoting and protecting human rights in the region, practically contributing to the people-centred ASEAN Community building.

In his remarks, Minh said AICHR has contributed to the grouping’s efforts to ease the adverse impact of COVID-19, especially to vulnerable groups.

Minh suggested the commission play an active role in the building of the ASEAN recovery framework and the mid-term review of the Blueprints of the ASEAN Community’s three pillars./.
