The SHARE Policy Dialogue was designed in partnership with the ASEAN Secretariat’s Education Youth and Sports Division (EYSD) to continue discussions on furthering ASEAN’s higher education cooperation and internationalization, including the transfer of ownership of SHARE’s program outcomes to ASEAN entities.

In his opening remarks, Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community, Kung Phoak, stated that promoting internationalized and quality higher education is vital, particularly amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, to support ASEAN community building and economic recovery in the long term.

Education has always been at the heart of the EU-ASEAN partnership, said EU Ambassador to ASEAN Igor Driesmans. “The SHARE program, our higher education flagship program, contributes to people-to-people connectivity between our two diverse regions and to student mobility within ASEAN.”

The ASEAN Working Group on Higher Education Mobility 2025 was officially launched as part of the opening of SHARE’s 12th Policy Dialogue.
