Russia ASEAN Youth Association Announcement

The 4th ASEAN-Russia Youth Summit that was being held on October 24-27, 2016 in Siem Reap Cambodia has resulted in some fresh ideas towards the summit. The ideas mainly focus on how the youth of ASEAN countries and Russia should be able to gain more information and source of knowledge about each other countries. The ideas were important to strengthen the relation among ASEAN and Russian youth which in further can create more contributions from the youth within regions toward the world.

On the 4th summit, there was a realization that up to since then, the alumni still did not have a platform as a place where they can still communicate productively and implement their ideas together after the summit. Starting from that realization, the summit resulted an initiative to create a platform for all alumni of the past until the latest ASEAN – Russia Youth Summits, where the alumni can productively communicate, gather, do projects and implement their ideas together, as their contribution towards the efforts to strengthen relations of ASEAN and Russian youth.
