Message from H.E. Dato Lim Jock Hoi Secretary-General of ASEAN
In line with this, programmes such as ‘ASEAN in Today’s World’ are welcomed in strengthening ASEAN awareness among the peoples of the region, as well as in promoting a culture of peace and mutual understanding. To this end, I commend the ‘ASEAN in Today’s World’ initiative for enabling the region’s young people to get to know each other better while developing the knowledge and life skills they need to successfully navigate today’s world and the future.
The ASEAN Secretariat remains committed in promoting positive initiatives such as this, with a view towards increasing people-to-people interactions and mobility within and outside the ASEAN region.
Dato Lim Jock Hoi
Secretary –General of ASEAN
Structure of AsTW:
The AS component gives AsTW its distinction as a rigorous introduction to selected ASEAN issues that increasingly affect global and regional “ASEAN+3” relations.
Students will broaden their knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of ASEAN and “ASEAN+3” cooperation through the AS courses. A valuable part of the program is the opportunity to approach ASEAN and East Asia topics from different perspectives.
The combination of AS and ALC studies will contribute to the students’ synthetic understanding of the ASEAN and East Asia communities.
To complete the AsTW program, students must enroll in two courses (one each from the ALC and AS offerings) for credit and participate in all official events. Students who meet all AsTW requirements will be awarded a certificate issued jointly by Kyushu University and a partner university.
