ASEAN Leaders’ Conference 2015

The ASEAN Leaders Conference was held at the Thai Royal Embassy on 2 December with the aims of forging stronger relations and network among the student leaders of ASEAN nations. The event was attended by around 75 student leaders and was a wonderful opportunity for the 18th UKSSC to interact with their counterparts from the other ASEAN countries. There was a fruitful exchange of ideas about how the ASEAN student community in UK can progress together.
The ASEAN Leaders Conference was a significant step in laying the foundations for stronger working ties between the UKSSC and other ASEAN student associations, setting the stage for future long-term collaborations. This event will lead up to the Warwick ASEAN conference, which we hope will further the rapport among our fellow ASEAN student leaders.
Once again, UKSSC would like to thank the SAMAGI SAMAGOM committee for the hard work and warm reception.
