ASEAN China Young Entrepreneurs Forum: “Renewing Prospects for Growth”

The Young Entrepreneurs Association Brunei will host the 5th ASEAN China Young Entrepreneurs Forum in Brunei Darussalam from the 19th to the 21st of August 2013.

The Forum 2013 aims to bring together 200 young entrepreneurs from across ASEAN and China to support ASEAN’s visions for economic integration through people to people exchange and investment.

This year’s theme, “Renewing Prospects for Growth” will provide delegates with the opportunity to reflect on ASEAN’s economic progress and prospects for strengthening business to business linkages between ASEAN members and China. Economic Ministers for ASEAN Member States and China are expected to take part, as well as senior government and business representatives from across the ASEAN region.

The Association (ACYEA) is a non-profit, independent ASEAN-China young entrepreneurs association established in 2008 that functions as a regional platform where ASEAN and Chinese businessmen can exchange information on cooperation beneficial to the development of trade and economic relations between ASEAN Member States and China.

According to Hafimi Abdul Haadii @ Frances, President of the Young Entrepreneurs Association Brunei and 5th ACYEF Chairperson, “Since the 1st ASEAN-China Young Entrepreneurs Workshop and ASEAN-China Young Entrepreneurs Forum in 2008 in both Brunei Darussalam and China, we have seen a convergence of the young businessmen networks in ASEAN and China. We greatly recommend the coming together of young businessmen in their own countries on a national level, thus increasing their role in shaping the future of their own economies.

Following the work from the past few forums in ASEAN and China, it is indeed an exciting time for Bruneians to continue the work and we welcome delegates from all ASEAN Member states and our fellow attendees from China. The formal establishment of the ASEAN-China Young Entrepreneurs Association, with the signing of the ACYEA constitution in 2010, has continued the aspirations of our leaders to encourage more interaction between young people in ASEAN and China”.
