East-West Center's Southeast Asia Journalism Fellowships “Reinventing ASEAN” programme

East-West Center's Southeast Asia Journalism Fellowships “Reinventing ASEAN” programme
Date/Time: Feb 18, 2009 / 2.30pm-4.15pm
Venue: SIIA House, 2 Nassim Road Singapore 258370

A group of ASEAN and US journalists under the Southeast Asia Journalism Fellowship Programme: “Reinventing ASEAN” is visiting ASEAN Think Tanks for a series of briefings on ASEAN issues. The programme aims to help the journalists better understand ASEAN, the implications of the ASEAN Charter and the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Blueprint, among others. The key aim is to engage the media in the community building efforts of ASEAN so that they in turn can spread the word about ASEAN to the people.

Besides Singapore, the journalists will visit Jakarta (Indonesia), Bangkok (Thailand) and Singapore to meet and network with officials from government, business organisations, NGOs, think tanks and other community members. They will also have a chance to witness first-hand some of ASEAN’s activities such as the implementation of the National Single Window at the Tanjung Priok port.

This Programme is organised and sponsored by the ASEAN-US Technical Assistance & Training Facility and the East-West Center. It is supported by Pacific Century Institute and Singapore International Foundation.
