ABYA is definitely one of a kind platform which allows youths to tap on their strengths to work alongside with other talented youths in the ASEAN market. Excited for the future of ABYA!

ASEAN is Singapore’s way of growing her ‘small domestic market’. With a population of more than 600 million with a significant youth proportion that is hungry and determined to exploit opportunities, there will be plenty of growth opportunities in the region for Singapore youth to leverage on and grow as skilled, tenacious and adaptive workers of the future of economy.

This is a great initiative to tap on the potential of ASEAN youths. We have to realize that collaboration and healthy competition breeds healthy outcomes. We need to broaden our horizons further and not rest on our laurels. We must internalize that the success of Singapore today has co-dependencies on the success of ASEAN. ABYA is a good step in the right direction aligned to the three pillars above. All the best!

I think ABYA is a very important and bold initiative and action for Singapore, Indonesia and fellow ASEAN countries as it helps our regional youths to open up their mindsets, networks and experiences. By coming together as nations of 650 million people, ASEAN is definitely a huge potential force to make a better future the world. ABYA as an organisation and platform can definitely help to achieve this. I am looking forward to read and see more about ABYA’s works to make our youths ASEAN-ready. All the best!

Learning opportunities are in abundance and ASEAN is one of the best avenues. Inculcating an open minded view would greatly benefit our growth. All the best to ABYA and their initiatives for the youths.

I feel that ABYA’s vision & mission to support and provide opportunities for youth to prepare themselves for the future is really important. Youths in SG are majority protected/dependent on their Family, which leads to the lack of exposure to the outside world. The opportunities that ABYA have currently and in the future will positively impact the learning & growth of youths in ASEAN.

As an Indonesian who has been living and studying in Singapore for many years, I am excited and personally invested in the opportunity that this team is highlighting. I believe that many Singaporean youths will greatly benefit from the exposure and connections forged with our friends in the region. I have personally benefitted from some of their sessions and am excited to see their proposed ideas coming to fruition. Given the right support and resources, I am confident that the team will be able to scale up their impact in equipping Singaporean youths for the ASEAN economy.

Interesting concept and focus in the youth experience! Would definitely be interested to find out more on how youths can be more ASEAN-ready via the many opportunities your team has discussed! In the long term, this may be very useful in helping youths to branch out to the other parts of ASEAN and to equip them with the relevant skills to be better prepared to deal with the bigger world out there!

Understanding about ASEAN is essential but not many young people are aware about it. ABYA really tackles the issue. Hope they can succeed with their work.

The ABYA team presents a cogent solution to the apathy that many youths today feel towards ASEAN. In our rapidly developing world, Singapore cannot afford to lose out on the opportunities that a closer relationship with our neighbors would generate. Needless to say, we especially cannot afford to let opportunities become competition through our inaction. ABYA, with its multi-pronged approach to educate and foster stronger ties between ASEAN youths is certainly a great step in the right direction. Hope that they will receive this funding to scale up their operations and make their dreams, our reality.

Great work by the ABYA team to explore opportunities in the ASEAN region. Hope the team is able to tap on this funding to scale the organisation and make its vision come true. With passionate leaders, clear organisational structure and the multiple programmes that the team has developed, this would greatly benefit youths in Singapore and groom ASEAN-ready youths for the future.

An insightful presentation and resourceful idea to tap onto the ASEAN market for collaboration and progress, given the big potential ASEAN has as a hub for learning new skill sets and exchanging ideas. Looking forward to hearing more about the project and on its progress!

On behalf of LucaNet, we would like to thank the ABYA team for allowing us to be part of the pilot experience. As part of a fast-growing organisation, we are constantly seeking insights and forming strategies to expand our reach in the ASEAN region. Thus far, we have not chanced upon any other initiative which allows us to connect with inquisitive youths looking to broaden their knowledge beyond our little red dot. ABYA perfectly harmonizes corporations' needs for market expansion with the knowledge and enthusiasm of Singapore's youths. Did we mention that ABYA is also led by a great team? We are in full support of ABYA's growth and we are excited for the future of this initiative.

ABYA is undoubtedly addressing a gap faced by youths in Singapore today. By drawing on the expertise and experiences of many, the community that ABYA aims to create will definitely be well supported in their ASEAN endeavors, be it job opportunities, internship attachments, or knowledge on the ASEAN landscape. ABYA has the potential to be the springboard for youths to start thinking about venturing into ASEAN, thereby broadening their perspectives through their professional careers. Through its resources, network, and members, the youth of the ABYA community can be constantly engaged and spurred on with a sense of tenacity and curiosity.

Team has a solid plan in place to expand their reach with their bottom-up approach that starts with building skills and concluding with job attachments.

Definitely agree with regards to the information gap and misperception about the other ASEAN member states among the youths! Great that this is an area of focus for their plan.

Wonderful initiative to raise the awareness of ASEAN among local youths! There is potential to expand this into a platform to connect youths across ASEAN for jobs, internships and market exposure opportunities. Can also explore ASEAN-China linkages in business, entrepreneurship and technology.

Beyond recognizing that there is a lack of awareness of the potential of ASEAN among youths, the team has taken a step further to develop multi-faceted programs to build up an ASEAN-ready youth community! Great work!

ABYA is not just an idea, it's an impactful and tangible solution to a real world problem. The ABYA team has already been addressing these gaps and doing its part and they can only grow from strength to strength here on.

Being part of the ABYA Sub Com, I am really thankful to be given the chance to groom my soft skills and to be working together with the other members of ABYA (A chance for me to meet new faces). ABYA has also given me a lot of opportunities to learn more about ASEAN and they have been actively engaging with speakers to organize webinars during this CB period to share their experiences and knowledge regarding the ASEAN region. ABYA has gone the extra mile and taught more about what isn't included in the education system and personally I feel that it is extremely relevant especially in this era. Thank you ABYA, and I look forward to the journey ahead!

Jing Zhi Sia

I feel ABYA is an extremely valuable initiative because with Singapore having a very small internal economy, we have to be very outward looking. This means that the youth--who are tomorrow's building blocks of the nation have to be regionally and internationally adept. This in my opinion, starts with the ASEAN region given its immense growth opportunities. As a youth myself, I find myself lacking a lot in (non-SG) ASEAN savviness. The formal education system has yet to be able to train me in this aspect, which in my opinion, comes with more experiential and on-the-ground learning. Hence, ABYA will serve as a valuable platform to supplement this gap!

Will be looking forward to the eventful programmes that lie ahead! I resonate with the view that many of the younger generation (myself included) possibly only know it as an intergovernmental organisation and some policies such as AFTA. It will be great to see initiatives that are better able to engage the youths of today!

Zach

Great to see the impact is not just focusing on Singapore alone, but also the ASEAN countries. Tapping on resources and stakeholders in each countries, I believe this initiative will go far.
