Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung will attend the fourth G20 summit in Canada as the rotating Chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) from June 26 to 27, said Vietnamese Foreign Ministry spokesperson here on Thursday.

Vietnam, representing ASEAN countries, will inform the participants at the G20 summit about priorities, vision and views of ASEAN in dealing with issues related to the global economic development, said Nguyen Phuong Nga, spokeswoman of Vietnamese Foreign Ministry at a regular press conference here.

Vietnam will also brief the summit on ASEAN's position on strengthening coordination between G20 members and other countries, especially emerging and developing countries like ASEAN, said Nga.

The participation of Vietnam as the Chair of ASEAN in G20 summit highlights the active role of ASEAN as a whole and Vietnam in particular in joining efforts with other countries in addressing international issues to ensure the recovery and sustainable development of the world economy, said Nga.
