(Sunday, March 29, 2015) – As a practical way to warmly welcome Vietnam’s integration into the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by the end of 2015, the IEI English Club event with the topic “ASEAN Community 2015: Unity in Diversity” was successfully conducted at Nguyen Van Thu Campus, District 1 with the enthusiastic participation of Assoc Prof. Dr. Phan Thi Hong Xuan, Chairperson of Ho Chi Minh City’s Vietnam - ASEAN Friendship Association; Dr. Maulana, STIE Mura Lubuklinggau Indonesia; Mr. Le The Hien, Member of Ho Chi Minh City’s Vietnam - ASEAN Friendship Association; and a large number of undergraduate and graduate students from IEI, Laos, Cambodia & many other universities in Ho Chi Minh City.
(From right to left) – Dr. Maulana Ali, Dr. Phan Thi Hong Xuan, and Mr. Le The Hien had wide-ranging talks on ASEAN Community’s economic integration project by the end of 2015, advantages and challenges for its member states, and more importantly, the behavioral culture for each nation to stimulate the economy and keep pace with the speed of regional integration and development tendencies.
After the relevant information sessions presented by keynote guest speakers, the second part of the event was effectively organized under the forms of group presentations and intellectual quizzes. All participants in the hall were divided into four groups to challenge themselves in presentation skills, teamwork spirits, and comprehensive knowledge of the ASEAN Community as well as the values of culture, tradition, custom, and economy of its member states on the roadway to ASEAN Economic Community 2015.
Once again, a sincere “Thank You” goes to all attendees for your great kindness, enthusiasm, participation, and whatever you have done to make the event such a big success. We look forward to welcoming you all again in the upcoming activities of IEI English Club.
