Aseanite was founded with the main aim of bringing together the next generation of leaders and professionals who will take forward the relationship between the ASEAN countries. In today’s rapidly evolving economic and financial landscape, ASEAN lies in the midst of the strategic and dynamic region of East Asia. Home to over half a billion people (approximately 10% of the world’s population), together, our ten countries constitute the seventh largest economy in the world. Having enjoyed remarkable economic growth and development in the last four decades, it is apparent that ASEAN is Asia’s pillar of strength and its engine of growth.
In line with the highly anticipated ASEAN Economic Community, Aseanite aims to provide social capital development services relevant to the needs and gaps in each local market, based on a shared network belief that empowering ASEAN citizens is central to driving economic and social development in ASEAN. Aseanite also aims to be the platform that connects the world to Southeast Asia, to improve the international community understanding on ASEAN’s growth potential and to facilitate business and investment opportunities that would benefit the region as a whole.
As Aseanite aims to strengthen social ties in the region, from time to time, Aseanite will organize forums, roundtables, conferences, fairs, festivals and other initiatives involving our region’s most prominent business, political, society and academic figures to share and enlighten our members on pertinent issues surrounding the region. We aim to play a key role in helping the region achieving an effective integration by raising engagement with key stakeholders such as businesses, corporations, graduates, executives and aspiring entrepreneurs in ASEAN matters.
Our network approach is critical to how we achieve impact. Working collaboratively through locally based and locally owned in-country initiatives enhances the legitimacy, relevance and effectiveness of our network of professionals. The collaborative network helps drive the scale and quality of support provided to our talented young professionals and entrepreneurs and ultimately, working together towards a common goal of shaping the future of Southeast Asia.
Living under the same clouds, dreaming the same dream.
Join us, and let us move forward, together.
