President Rodrigo Roa Duterte participated in the 36th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit with his fellow Heads of State/Government through video conferencing at the Malacañang Golf (MALAGO) Clubhouse in Malacañang Park, Manila.

This is the first Plenary Session of the regional bloc meeting after the opening ceremony where Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam gave a speech as this year’s ASEAN Chair.

The Philippine Chief Executive delivered his first remarks in the 36th ASEAN Summit in this Plenary Session.

Due to the constraints posed by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), this is the first regular ASEAN Summit to be convened via video conferencing.
