We are proud to present the third 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 ASEAN.
Technopreneurship - a mindset to success
This year, theexploreASEAN delegation will visit the member states Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam. The new edition's theme Technopreneurship focuses on how the chosen countries make the best use of technology and entrepreneurship to further stimulate their economic growth.
Considering the newly evolving technological developments, it is uncertain whether the traditional model of industrialisation, growing through a strong manufacturing base can be repeated. Although Singapore is not as dependent on manufacturing as Indonesia and especially Vietnam, they are all increasingly investing in the digital age, as well as in infrastructure. This recent developments motivated us to investigate further in this field.
We would like to have you on board toexploreASEAN together!
On Friday, 23rd of February 2018, the Preparatory Seminar ended with an interesting joint event of all the four student projects. The event was characterised by a great speech of Marc Blaser and a career fair, at which many partners of the projects were represented. Moreover, we had the pleasure to attend a worthwile panel discussion with experts in new technologies and a political influencer.
This Thursday, we could receive diverse inputs from lectures sharing from a diverse topic range their experiences about the ASEAN countries that we are going to visit. The roundtable discussion with the participating lecturers gave us the chance to interact directly with them and ensure a insightful knowledge transfer. What an inspiring day!
The second day of this year’s preparatory seminar provided our delegation further insights into the ASEAN member states that we are going to visit on our onsite trip in April.
We are honored to have welcomed the Minister-Counsellor of the Indonesian Embassy and the Consular of Vietnamese Embassy today which gave us also a political understanding about the relation between the both countries and Switzerland.
