We are proud to present 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 ASEAN.
Emerging Southeast Asian Markets
This year,exploreASEAN will focus on the three countries Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam. Whereas Singapore has grown to a global business centre, Vietnam and Indonesia are regarded as emerging markets with countless business opportunities.
Considering this positive outlook, we name the 2016/2017 exploreASEAN project “Emerging Southeast Asian Markets”. It is expected that the future development in the region will have great impact on its consumer landscape. New needs and wants ask for new products and for suppliers capable of understanding local conditions and people’s desires. Therefore, exploreASEAN builds a network and provides a platform for students and companies to get familiar with the ASEAN economies. We would like to have you on board to exploreASEAN together!
