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.
In the past year, the magazine has become a reliable source of information on ASEAN’s work in responding to the pandemic and easing the burdens of our people. The publication also serves as a window to the ongoing work of various sectors under ASEAN’s three community pillars. Communicating with the people we serve is an important part of the work we do. Listening to the experiences and views of ordinary citizens is equally important as they inform and inspire our work.
