Jakarta, July 25th 2014 – It’s an honour for Indonesia to have the chance in hosting one of the most important events regarding the preparation of ASEAN Community 2015, this August. The three main objectives of ASEAN Community 2015 are namely the acceleration of vision in political-security, economic, and socio-cultural among ASEAN countries. As one of the pioneers of the ASEAN countries, Indonesia has a significant role in conducting notable events for the organisation. For example, during the ASEAN Summit that was held in Bali 2011, Indonesia contributed to the nuclear weapon free zone agreements in Southeast Asia or Southeast Asia Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (SEANWFZ).

However, the role of Indonesia can not be separated from the participation of Indonesian youth. In the event entitled ASEAN Youth Expo 2014, Indonesian youth shows their concern for ASEAN growth. “In the spirit of welcoming the establishment of ASEAN
Community 2015, we have to prepare our youth to be ready in terms of knowledge, skill, and network. They are the driving force to shape our future towards a forward-looking ASEAN Community. Hence we need to constantly socialize the issue until everyone, especially young people, know about ASEAN Community 2015 so they will be able to realize how important their role is and get themselves ready,” said Minister of Youth and Sports of the Republic of Indonesia, Roy Suryo.

Forty youth delegates from all over ASEAN countries will gather at fX Sudirman, Jakarta from August 8 to 11, 2014 for ASEAN Youth Expo (AYE) 2014. Themed “Gateway to ASEAN”, AYE 2014 is hosted by Ministry of Youth and Sports of the Republic of Indonesia
and organized by On That Point (OTP) Institute of Artistic Speaking in the purpose of creating a strong network between ASEAN countries through their youth. Aryo Moedanton, AYE 2014 Project Officer and Managing Director of OTP Institute of Artistic Speaking, hopes this forum can create a space for discussion which intrigues innovative ideas to be implemented as real action for a better ASEAN Community. The delegates will engage with
each other in a three-day activity including workshop, film screening, discussion session, and cultural learning over traditional games and cultural expos.

Not only introducing ASEAN cultures, AYE 2014 will also help young people prepare their future by providing career and scholarship expo and workshops. In addition to gathering all the information you need to know about your future career and education, you
can also enjoy enchanting cultural performance presented by the delegates. ASEAN Youth Expo is definitely a fruitful festival for people who want to experience cultural diversities from
10 countries, get educative information, expand their network, and even develop new soft skill; all for no-charge at all. What are you waiting for? Let’s celebrate our spirit as the youth of ASEAN!
