Our Strategic Priorities
Raising ASEAN Awareness
To increase awareness of ASEAN’s massive economic growth potential at the local, national, regional and global levels. We intend to bring forward leaders from different industries ranging from academics, political leaders, non-profit heads, business experts and community leaders, to give a holistic view of ASEAN, its opportunities and how to act upon it. We also aim to engage the youth through innovative platforms in promoting social dialogues, and people-to-people exchanges – to share the collective dreams and aspirations of ASEAN.
Innovating and Cultivating Regional Solutions
To be the leading regional institution in formulating innovative policies and solutions to issues faced by governments, businesses and societies in ASEAN. Through the gathering of the best and brightest minds that Southeast Asia has to offer whilst utilising and employing the latest advancements in technology, we aim to provide the knowledge and resources to further elevate ASEAN’s role as a global economic powerhouse and change maker.
Bridging the Socio-Economic Gap in Southeast Asia
We recognise the potential and importance of empowering communities to be a real force of positive socioeconomic change. Hence, it is our objective to bring together all relevant stakeholders in Southeast Asia to bridge the gap and develop more cohesive and integrated communities across the region. With the cooperation of governments and institutions in Southeast Asia and beyond, we can provide the necessary tools needed to formulate policies while getting citizens to work together towards a common goal and agenda in ASEAN.
Advocating and Representing for Southeast Asia
Southeast Asia is our family, our community, and our home. We hope to bring great development, prosperity and success to the region in advocating the best policies, strategies and solutions that are best aligned with our national and regional objectives in ASEAN. In playing a major role to achieve the ASEAN Economic Community’s aspiration of regional economic integration, we want to create the right environment to produce positive outcomes that benefit the people of ASEAN in various contexts including economic, financial markets, entrepreneurship, regulation and taxation, education and training, labour market, and cross-sector collaborations.
Creating and Nurturing ASEAN’s Social Capital Network
Creating and nurturing a strategic regional network of leaders and experts is crucial towards capacity building and socio-economic development in Southeast Asia. We aim to bring the creators, innovators, thinkers and doers together to not only build and bridge social capital, but also collectively contribute in transforming ASEAN into a global hub for innovation, investments and opportunities.
