On 27 September, nine students from the Korea Student Aid Foundation mentoring program and their mentor, Chung Hae Moon, participated in the Centre’s Youth Visit Program. The students with high interest in international organizations and international affairs signed up for the program to learn about the ASEAN-Korea relations and the ASEAN-Korea Centre.
The program began with remarks from Lee Kyeong-a, Director of ASEAN Hall and Chung Hae Moon, former ambassador to Thailand and Greece, and Korea Student Aid Foundation mentor. After exchanging welcoming remarks, the students were briefed on ASEAN, ASEAN-Korea Relations and ASEAN-Korea Centre. Following the presentation, Q&A discussion took place on the topics of ASEAN’s politics, security, human rights, economy, society, culture, and education. To help answer the students’ questions and develop a better understanding of ASEAN and ASEAN-Korea relations, Kim He-jin, Head of Information and Data Unit, and two ASEAN officials Joshua Ngooi Teck Hwa, Head of Trade and Information Unit, and Siti Maisarah Haji Majid, Deputy Head of Information and Data Unit, joined in the discussion session. Before concluding the program, the students made their Thailand Wat Arun paper crafts and took a group photo.
