The ASEAN magazine was launched in May 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic caused unimaginable loss of lives and livelihoods around the world. ASEAN initiated concerted efforts to respond to this health emergency and the subsequent economic downturn in our region.
The ASEAN is a bi-monthly magazine that provides up-to-date information on ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community developments, including ongoing initiatives and partnerships to address critical issues and emerging trends affecting the ASEAN region. It also carries profile pieces and human-interest stories on individuals and organisations that uphold ASEAN’s ideals and values.
Our website features the full content of the latest magazine release, plus select articles and interviews from past editions of the magazine. A limited number of print copies is available on a first come, first served basis.
The magazine is a product of the ASEAN Secretariat, under the supervision of the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community Department or ASCCD. The ASEAN Secretariat is the working arm of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a social, political, and economic grouping composed of the following Member States: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
