President Benigno S. Aquino III joined the participating ASEAN leaders in a welcome dinner hosted by Myanmar President U Thein Sein before the 24th ASEAN Summit formally kicks off on Sunday.

President Aquino is set to attend the ASEAN Summit Plenary, the Summit Retreat, and join in the ASEAN Leader’s interface meeting with the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA), ASEAN Civil Society Organizations and representatives of the ASEAN Youth.
