30th of June to 2nd of July 2010, Hanoi, Vietnam
Dear Alumni, dear participants,
on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), InWEnt Capacity Building International, Germany, is organizing the 1st Interdisciplinary Alumni Conference in Southeast Asia “Regional Integration in Southeast Asia: Leadership Challenges and Network Building”.
In the Southeast Asian region the challenge is to provide leadership in managing regional interdependence and its impact and in overcoming some inherent contradictions between being competitive and being part of a community. For an ASEAN community to evolve leadership is needed in state sector, private sector and civil society: More people-to-people interactions through common projects, networks, virtual networks, commerce and others to make the single countries, this region and their international cooperation more stable and prosperous.
Invited participants of the conference are welcome to discuss and disseminate innovative approaches on how to enhance regional integration to respond to global challenges. By offering an interdisciplinary dialogue forum dealing with the challenges and opportunities arising, the conference will showcase the good practices and past achievements. With the rich experience of our Alumni we hope to spot new ways for Southeast Asia to indicate possible elements for a more successful development of a worldwide globalization process of a world economy.
At the conference, various working groups are organized by the InWEnt divisions, to discuss sub-topics of the overall conference theme. At a net-working session all participants are invited to meet and interact with each other in view of enlarging the partnership network. The conference will be held in English.
We hope to have sparked your interest in our conference and would be pleased to welcome you in Hanoi next June!
