Trade group: Forum to give clear picture of China and ASEAN trade

THE 5th ASEAN-China Young Entrepreneurs Forum, a two-day forum that will be held at the International Convention Centre on August 20-21, will help entrepreneurs get a clearer picture of doing business in the two Asian regions, the head of the organisation for young entrepreneurs in the sultanate said.

In an interview, Hafimi Abdul Haadi, president of the Young Entrepreneurs Association for Brunei (YEAB), said that the forum has allocated three sessions for China, its outlook and attitude towards business.

She also said there would be sessions to tackle what young people feel about ASEAN's economic integration, scheduled for 2015. "Do we care about it, do we look at it from a positive perspective, do we see opportunity in that?," she said.

"We also have a session on leadership and entrepreneurship on how the young people lead in their own economies," she added, noting that a speaker, Aries Agro Ltd in India executive director Dr Rahul Mirchandani, was spearheading the Commonwealth Asian Alliance of Entrepreneurs, which YEAB is part of.

The YEAB president added that there would also be a breakout session that would discuss Myanmar and Cambodia.

"It's an obligation for certain countries to develop and to share opportunities with other countries that are emerging and trying to build a strong economic base for entrepreneurs," she said.

Hafimi also said that YEAB members were looking forward to listening to Linda Liu of NQ Mobile Inc from China, who will be a part of "The China Conversation".

This year's the forum will be tackling "Renewing Prospects for Growth", with an aim to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to reflect on ASEAN's economic progress and prospects for strengthening business-to-business linkages between ASEAN members and China.

Economic ministers for ASEAN member states and China are expected to take part, as well as senior government and business representatives from across the ASEAN region.

Hafimi said more than 120 participants from China and ASEAN member states have registered for the event.

In a related development, Hafimi said that YEAB members were looking forward to the creation of a fixed website for the association.

She also said that the group aimed to have more inter-networking among ASEAN counterparts, which is why the programme was set up the way it is.

The topics for the forum were chosen by Brunei as the host country and drawn from other forums held in the region, she said.

'We try to pick things that will be able to give good comments, and most of the sessions are panel sessions, as opposed to just someone standing on the podium and talking, so we allow for more interaction.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
