Excellencies Presidents, Vice Presidents and all Members of VECONAC Member Countries,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Forty years ago, on 19 December 1980, the Leaders of five Veterans Associations of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand gathered in Jakarta, with the witness of HE Adam Malik, Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, proclaimed the foundation of the Veterans Confederation of ASEAN Countries. The objectives of the Confederation are to focus and promote the efforts of the Veterans Associations of Southeast Asian countries in enhancing the interests of the veterans including the wounded veterans and their families, contributing to peace, stability, harmony and development in the region and the world.

Looking back at its 40-year history of foundation and development, we can be proud to say that VECONAC has been striving untiringly to achieve its noble objectives. Starting from five members only, VECONAC now is an organization consisting of all ten ASEAN member countries, which is recognized as a social, humanitarian organization affiliated to ASEAN. More and more initiatives have been implemented among VECONAC members, such as, delegation exchange, information and knowledge sharing, participating in support and development projects, thus bringing practical results to the life of the veterans, especially the elderly and the wounded veterans of our respective countries. These activities also have brought our veterans closer together and strengthened the solidarity, friendship and mutual understanding, for peace, security and prosperity in our respective countries and in the region.

In 2020, the Veterans Association of Vietnam (VAVN) is honored to assume the role of VECONAC Chair, which exactly coincides with the year of important significance when we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the establishment of VECONAC. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not able to organize the 20th VECONAC General Assembly in Hanoi in order to meet, exchange ideas and commemorate this important event.

In the capacity as President of VECONAC in 2020, I would like to wish our Confederation further development, making an important contribution to the cause of peace, stability and prosperity in Southeast Asia and the world.

Excellencies,

The New Year 2021 is coming near, I would like to take this opportunity to convey to Your Excellencies Presidents, Vice Presidents and all members of our respective VECONAC members our best wishes for a Very Happy, Prosperous and Successful New Year.

Sincerely Yours,

VECONAC FOREVER, FOREVER VECONAC ! 

 

      PRESIDENT OF VECONAC

PRESIDENT OF VAVN

                                              

                                    Senior Lieutenant General (Ret) NGUYEN VAN DUOC
