During this difficult time, I wish to express my heartfelt sympathies and solidarity to the government of the People’s Republic of China and its citizens affected by the spread of Covid-19. I would also like to commend China for rapidly containing the spread of the virus. ASEAN and China have been cooperating in the regional preparedness and response actions against Covid-19. They have also intensified their commitment to share information, technical expertise and updates on mitigating the spread of the virus. They are aware that Covid-19 has destructed many economies. Together, the key priority for ASEAN member states is to implement timely and coordinated measures to shorten and soften the economic impact of the outbreak. Our collective response is crucial to normalize the situation, so that joint efforts such as the China-ASEAN Expo can continue to enhance business networking and regional connectivity. Finally, I would like to reiterate that together through cooperation and solidarity, we will overcome Covid-19 and I look forward to a successful China-ASEAN Expo.
