Vietnam has travelled a long way since 1995. The opening up of the country has resulted in the betterment of security and development goals, and a bigger international role. Vietnam could not have earned the credit without a principled but realistic, firm but flexible, and proactive foreign policy. From being an isolated country, today Vietnam has diplomatic relations with 189/193 members of the United Nations, and 30 comprehensive and strategic partners and is member of various regional and international organizations such as ASEAN, APEC, WTO, UN as well as important treaties and agreements  with recent examples being the CPTPP and EVFTA). In 2020, Vietnam is Chair of ASEAN and sits on the UNSC (2020-2021 term). Why and how Vietnam is able to arrive at those milestones are the questions of great interest to the international audience.
