 GRIPS is collaborating with FPCI (Foreign Policy Community in of Indonesia) in convening the FPCI-GRIPS Public Forum, a monthly discussion series where experts and policy makers can discuss the most pressing issues of international affairs and foreign policy with researchers and students across Southeast Asia and Japan.

 At the 3rd Forum, we will focus on the young generation called Generation Y(Millennials, born in 1980-1995) and Generation Z (born in 1996-2012).  By 2025, the combination of Generation Y and Z will create more than half of APAC consumers.  We will discuss how big their influence towards our economic, cultural and political landscape. What are their concerns and expectations from the government and international community?


Please join us and watch the forum!
