Celebrating Europe Day!
On Saturday 9 May the EU Mission to ASEAN celebrated Europe Day and the launch of the 2020 Blue Book in a virtual online event with over 100 young people from across the ASEAN region. Hosted remotely by Agatha, an EU ERASMUS+ awardee, and Hanny, an EU SHARE scholarship alumnus, the event featured a public Q&A with the Ambassador, video messages from across the region, and a quiz.
Ten EU ambassadors from the ten ASEAN Member States, along with Dato Lim Jock Hoi, ASEAN Secretary General, contributed a witty video message to proceedings, highlighting the wide range of EU-ASEAN cooperation.
Watch a short video of the highlights of the event: H.E. Igor Driesmans and young people from across the region explain what the EU-ASEAN relationship means to them, the Ambassador answers some personal and diplomatic questions, and everyone enjoys a quiz.
