Attending the 1 st ASEAN Social Media Exchange & Social Media Communication Strategy for ASEAN

I am right now in Jakarta to attend the 1st ASEAN Social Media Exchange and Social Media Communication Strategy for ASEAN.

The email surprised me because I got it two weeks before the date. At first I thought it was a scam but I did a research on GIZ , a German development organisation that is behind the ASEAN meeting and discovered it was legitimate of course.

The overall objective is to facilitate a reasonably informal exchange about Social Media Strategy for ASEAN. It is likely that various formal outcomes and implementations would emerge from the meeting and be rolled out in 2012, probably as a suite of related projects which may include internal training at ASEAN, follow up initiatives addressing topics that emerge from the meeting, etc.

So many exciting personalities are here right now in this ASEAN meeting including the ASEAN Secretariat, social media personalities from Indonesia, Brunei, Cambodia and consultants from Brussels, New Zealand, Germany, and Singapore.
