Spotlight: The ASEAN Foundation

News by ALC Chairman

Since its founding almost a dacade ago , the ASEAN Foundation has worked to support ASEAN’s community-building efforts by focusing on the development of human resources in four sectors of ASEAN cooperation, namely, social development, science and technology, environment, and culture and information. It has organised a variety of training and skills development activities, including seminars, workshops, network building events, and fellowships.


The ASEAN Foundation was established through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the ASEAN Foreign Ministers at ASEAN’s 30th Anniversary Commemorative Summit in December 1997. The Foundation was created to promote greater awareness of ASEAN; encourage greater interaction among the peoples of ASEAN, and facilitate their wider participation in ASEAN’s activities through human resources development; and contribute to the evolution of a development cooperation strategy in ASEAN that promotes mutual assistance, equitable economic development, and the alleviation of poverty.

Recent ASEAN Summit mandates and emerging challenges facing ASEAN had resulted in a re-alignment and refinement of the Foundation’s priorities and functions.

The focus is now on enhancing greater awareness of ASEAN by demonstrating its relevance and benefit to the ASEAN peoples; placing a focus on the ASEAN youth and their role in building as well as sustaining an ASEAN community in the years ahead; and promoting greater access to information and communication technology (ICT) by various social groups as a means to empower people and reduce the development gaps and disparities in the region.

ASEAN VENTURES INTO THE NEW MEDIA ARTS

For the first time, ASEAN provided artists in the region an opportunity to explore new innovative art models through the use of information technology in the ASEAN New Media Arts Competition. A project of the ASEAN Committee on Culture and Information (ASEAN-COCI), the competition broke away from mainstream traditional art preservation projects and explored new ground with the marriage of the traditional and contemporary in the area of visual arts.

The theme of the competition was “Interaction in Cultural Diversity” and individuals were invited to submit work under two categories - moving images (i.e. video, animation, film) and interactive projects (web-based presentation). An exhibition of the eighteen winning entries was held at the Indonesian Art Gallery early this year. Spurred by the success of the first ASEAN New Media Arts Competition, the ASEAN-COCI is expected to organise a second edition of the contest next year.

ASEAN MEMBER COUNTRIES TO SHARE COMMUNICATION

During the ninth conference of Asean Ministers Responsible for Information (AMRI) from May 24 to 25 in Jakarta, the ASEAN member countries discussed on information exchanging in an effort to solve problems faced by the countries. The countries agreed to cope together with regional issues such as bird flu, children and women development, environmental protection, HIV and AIDS prevention and control, climate change, human trafficking and drug abuse among teenagers.

UK-ASEAN relations: The UK has strong relations with ASEAN, both bilaterally and multilaterally, and has formal relations with ASEAN through the EU, via the EU-ASEAN dialogue, the Asia-Europe meeting and the ASEAN regional forum.

There is every reason to believe that the share of the UK would continue to increase through bilateral relationships which provide increasing resources for the United Kingdom’s trade and investment in all the countries in that region with a great deal of effort is going into putting new investment, skills and technology into those relationships.

On behalf of the ASEAN London Committee (ALC), it was our pleasure to welcome the Secretary General of ASEAN, His Excellency Ong Keng Yong, as a guest of honour of the British Government, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) in London, an event which the Foreign and Commonwealth Office had arranged in conjunction with Asia House.

ALC would like to congratulate the Secretary General on his significant achievements leading ASEAN in establishing a thriving community and an important investment destination, as his five year term will be completed at the end of his year. We wish him well for the future.
