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 and Digitalization 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 and Digitalization focuses on how coopetition can help ASEAN to achieve a higher value creation as a whole, especially in terms of digitalization, as not every member state is on the same level yet in this regard. 

While it is clear that friendly competition among all ASEAN member states exists, they still cooperate with each other as members of an intra-governmental organization in order to foster prosperity across their individual borders. The concept of coopetition can be applied to several aspects but will undoubtedly prove to be particularly interesting in the field of digitalization, as not every member state of ASEAN is equally developed in this regard. 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!
