Building Bridges to Southeast Asia

exploreASEAN Map Asean countries, Southeast Asia

Welcome to exploreASEAN!

We are proud to present the fourth edition of exploreASEAN, which is providing young people with the chance to access the ASEAN community.

Each member state of ASEAN has its unique economical, cultural and environmental characteristics. It is challenging to gain an impression of job prospects in each country in Southeast Asia. Our project pursues to give an in-depth understanding of each country to young talents and supports them to gain a foothold in the ASEAN region.

Coopetition in ASEAN

Over the course of this fourth edition, the exploreASEAN delegation will visit the three member states Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam. The new edition's theme Coopetition in ASEAN focuses on how coopetition can help ASEAN to achieve a higher value creation as a whole.

Coopetition stands for cooperation and competition. While friendly competition among all ASEAN member states exists, they still cooperate with each other as members of an intra-governmental organization, fostering prosperity across their individual borders. As of today, the majority of ASEAN member states are being classified as lower-middle income or middle-income countries, yet, at the same time, they demonstrate high economic growth rates. However, not every country in ASEAN is equally developed, not only in terms of economic strength, but also in fields such as education, infrastructure, and digitalization. Coopetition will undoubtedly provide the ASEAN region with a chance to achieve crucial economic and political importance in the world. We strive to find out how coopetition and digitalization impact the ASEAN region and how everyone can best benefit from it. 

 We would be honored to have you on board to exploreASEAN together!
