The Youth Dialogues with ASEM Leaders are virtual sessions that connect young people with ASEM Leaders and, hence, encourage their interest and participation in the ASEM process. Embedded in the 4th ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS4) programme, they serve as curtain raisers in the lead up to the 13th ASEM Summit, hosted by the Government of Cambodia towards the end of the year. The discussion in each dialogue will focus on one Sustainable Development Goal (either SDG3, 4, 8 or 13). The dialogues will include inspirational remarks by the ASEM Leader, followed by a conversation that is moderated by ASEFYLS4 youth representatives.
This session with H.E. Mrs Pornpimol KANCHANALAK, Advisor to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand will explore the ASEFYLS4 topic of ‘Sustainable Development in a Post-COVID-19 World’ with a particular focus on SDG3 – Good Health and Wellbeing.
