The Public Affairs Section of the U. S. Embassy in Hanoi announces an open competition for a cooperative agreement to develop and implement a six-day workshop (inclusive of arrival and departure days) in Hanoi on YSEALI Economic Engagement in ASEAN for the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI),
pending the availability of funds.
The YSEALI Economic Engagement in ASEAN will bring together 80 YSEALI members from across ASEAN countries who have economic or business backgrounds and leadership potential.
The workshop will enable participants to study about the newly established ASEAN Economic Community, the trade relations among ASEAN countries and with the U. S. through presentations, case studies and simulation that follow the model of the ASEAN Summit.
Also included are leadership and other soft skills training, for example:
on advocacy, negotiation, personal branding, which are core soft skills YSEALI members need to become successful economic and business leaders.
Additionally, participants will have a chance to join cultural activities, company visits and other site visits that reflect ASEAN culture immersion and U.S.-ASEAN business relations.
YSEALI (www.yseali.state.gov) is the U. S. government’s signature initiative to engage with emerging leaders in Southeast Asia.
The program aims to create a network of young Southeast Asian leaders who work across national borders to solve common problems.
The YSEALI Economic Engagement in ASEAN workshop will be one of several events whose topic cuts across the four pillars of YSEALI – environment and natural resources management, economic development, civic engagement, and education.
