The solidarity of ASEAN is the first and foremost ingredient for ASEAN to be credible in the world and to be fully integrated into a community. The ultimate goal of ASEAN is to reach to a peaceful and prosperous community where ASEAN will be outward looking, playing a leading role in emerging regional architecture and contributing to the healthy development of global community, people-centred, caring and socially responsible, economically dynamic, sustainable and resilient, maintaining peace, stability and harmony. Myanmar's chairmanship of ASEAN aims to add value to these ASEAN objectives and dynamics.
