Developing knowledge of trade trends and what lies ahead in the ASEAN Economic Community is important for businesses to operate efficiently and effectively throughout the global value chain. Cross-border commercial and business operations can be complex, and this requires a thorough understanding of challenges and opportunities.
Southeast Asian entrepreneurs and leaders in business, government and civil society who want to improve their understanding of Southeast Asian value chains are invited to apply for fellowships being offered by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the National University of Singapore (NUS). The four-day program will provide participants with a toolkit of ideas to take full advantage of a connected ASEAN Economic Community.
Eligibility: Anyone from ASEAN member countries and Timor-Leste can apply for a fellowship grant to attend. Women leaders from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Timor-Leste, the Philippines, and Vietnam are especially encouraged to apply for the discretionary scholarships and grants.
Fellowship grants: Up to approx. CA$8,000 (including accommodation and transportation)
Program dates: April 25–28, 2017
Application deadline: NUS recommends applying before February 25, 2017
