Globalization is not only an economic process but also reflects human race’s desire for peace and for conquering challenges. As the largest continent in terms of area and population, Asia has become a major growth impetus of the globalized world, he said.

The rise of Asia is the rise of countries which are pursuing extensive international integration like Singapore, the Republic of Korea or China. Asia is taking the lead in cooperation and international integration with more than 150 free trade agreements (FTAs), accounting for 58% of the total number of FTAs on earth.

However, the globalization process in Asia is now challenged by complicated developments of religious extremism, terrorism threats, missile tests on the Korean Peninsula, tensions in the East China Sea and East Vietnam Sea, natural disasters and epidemics.

Against that backdrop, PM Phuc called for maintaining a peaceful and stable environment by building healthy and coherent bonds, enhancing trust and sincerity among countries in terms of security, politics, and economic development.

Asia needs to focus on addressing its internal differences and act responsibly on the basis of equality, mutual respect and compliance of international law. The continent should strengthen soft power through maintaining and promoting its diversity and uniqueness of cultural identities, including diligence, studiousness, and friendship among others.
