Under a Youth exchange program between Korea and Indonesia, a delegation of government officials and 20 university students from Indonesia visited the ASEAN-Korea Centre (AKC) on 19 October. They took part in a briefing and a Q&A discussion session that touched upon the various aspects of ASEAN-Korea partnership and AKC’s activities.

In addition, a special song and dance performance was showcased by the Indonesian delegates under the theme of ‘Unity in Diversity’, in which students from Seocheon Middle School (Yongin City, Gyeonggi Province) had the privilege of enjoying exceptional cultural experience. In response, Mme. Siti Tri Joelyartini, Deputy Head of the Development Planning and General Affairs Unit (DPGAU) led the Seocheon Middle School students in a sing-a-long session of the well-known Indonesian children’s song, “Satu-satu Aku Sayang Ibu”.
