  • Economically, ASEAN could become real if we realize that we need a community to protect the economic rights of the people of ASEAN. Like European Union for example. But for politics is not that simple, because there are differences in the perception of democracy and freedom of expression

ASEANetizen is place where everyone can share the same enthusiasm, making new friends, exchanging experience and inspire one another. A place where we exercise the freedom to express our thoughts and knowledge that can enrich one another’s horizon through series of stories, images, and comments. This is the place where everyone is welcome.
