It can be seen as a summary of what has been presented and discussed during the meetings in Indonesia and Thailand.

Foreword
Understanding that for every small countrys sustained development, the export dynamics are an imperative; Republic of Austria had launched the initiative for creation of the new type of university already in the mid-1990s. This perfectly matched with the EU Lisbon strategy which by 2000 announced that Europes further development can only be achieved by departing from the industrial to post-industrial, knowledge-based economy without compromising the environment and by reconciling the economic advancement with the preservation of social security and political liberties. This new type of university the so-called universities of applied sciences, paved the way for the foundation of the IMC. The IMC Export Management program EUASAEAN NAFTA chose English as its only language of instruction, put the strong focus to other foreign languages; French, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and Arabic have been introduced alongside the two obligatory practical training semesters by which students have been required to work minimum 22 weeks abroad in their respective 4th and 7th semester. Substantive focus of the Program has been on the three majors: Foreign Trade & Intl. Marketing (i), Intercultural Management (ii) and Intl. Law and Global Political Studies (iii), parallel to the three geographic focuses: on the EU, ASEAN and MERCOSUR-NAFTA. This indeed internationalized the IMC Export fellows right now there are students & graduates working and studying on literary every continent and corner of the globe. Repeatedly, by different surveys in past 7-8 years, the IMC University has been proclaimed as one of the best in the EU, and its Export program has by far the best employability score in all of Austria (by independent rankings of Industriele and Gewine magazines as well as the official State office of Employment AMS). The unemployment rate of the IMC EXP graduates in last 5 years was 1,7% only far bellow of any EU or Austrian average. Chairperson for the International Law and Global Political Studies, Prof. Bajrektarevic is an Acting Deputy Study Director, and the longest serving member of the EXP team. Besides teaching subjects of Geo-political Affairs, Sustainable Development (Institutions and Instruments of, incl. the Environmental Ethics) and the Intl. Law and Law of IOs and EU, he is extensively publishing and guest lecturing all over the globe. Finally, using his extensive diplomatic contacts, Prof. Bajrektarevic has organized some 120 round-tables and events in the past two decades; was hosting close to 100 ambassadors, dozens of ministers and state secretaries, three EU commissioners, and was drafting and

conducting over twenty study trips to the relevant International FORA in Vienna, Geneva and Paris1.

By early 2009, Prof. Bajrektarevic has conceptualized (in a close cooperation with the Austrian business, Trade Chamber, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Export graduates) a new project the so-called Employability Booster. Named the Business Focus Study Trip, this unique concept, which by its vision and passion links the best of public diplomacy and business networking, aimed to horizontalize the vision and idea, institutions and instruments of great EU and ASEAN model of life, and to compare and contrast two selected countries of a particular region in which the senior students and recent graduates will be exposed for the two-week time. Currently, the similar project is under preparation for the Central Asia and for the MERCOSUR (Latin American countries) as well as the follow up of the third BF ASEAN. The ASEAN itself is a very dynamic regional grouping which is not well represented and understood in the EU. With 580 million people and a combined GDP ( 1,1500 billion for 2009) ASEAN has a bigger economy then India, and not too far from China this is a fact which is nearly unknown in Europe. On the other side, the ASEAN has no deeper insights into the affairs of the EU. (Actually, for both groupings the deeper integration processes have

consumed so much energy that to the outside world they often look like inward looking, introverted blocks which of course neither ASEAN nor the EU wants to be.) Feeling the need to close this knowledge-gap, Prof. Bajrektarevic was aiming its first Business Focus to ASEANs vibrant and dynamic countries of Malaysia and Thailand.
In September of 2009, some 30 Export senior students and recent graduates (of 7 nationalities) have

experienced 15 remarkable days in two Asian countries residing in the heart of SEA; over 60 hours of in-house lectures and 30 hours of study/cultural outdoor visits, 40 speakers of 19 nationalities (among which 15 field experts of senior level), also 4 ambassadors, one minister, one senator, Sultan of Perlis and late Malaysian king, as well as the Kings brother - the State Secretary of Perlis in short, was an outcome of the BFA 2009 (for detailed overview, images, impressions and the particularities of the previous years programs, please refer to 160 page report http://www.scribd.com/doc/81873237/BFA-2009-Public-Diplomacy-Business-Networking ). Moreover, in late June/early July of 2010, the next group of 32 Export senior students and recent graduates (of 8 nationalities) have experienced 15 memorable days in two ASEAN countries: Indonesia and Malaysia. The score of BFA II is impressive: over 50 hours of inclass lectures have been conducted in the Diplomatic Academies of Indonesia and Malaysia as well as the HQ of ASEAN with the hospitality provided by the EU Delegation as well as the Austrian ambassadors in both countries (not to forget the courtesy visits and talks at the national Trade and Foreign ministries as well as local think-tanks). All together some 250 persons took part (including the young diplomats of both countries along the Export fellows). The BFA II group has been addressed by as many as 40 speakers of 15 nationalities (among which 25 field experts of senior level), including the ASEANs Deputy Secretary General, 4 Ministers and 6 ambassadors. The EXP fellows additionally experienced 40 hours of studycultural outdoor visits which included memorable cultural performances (including the behind-scene talks with artists as well as the visits to the country side, cultural sites and socalled home-stay) /The full account of the BFA 2010 report is obtainable under:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/98178802/BFA-2010-EU-ASEAN-Public-Diplomacy-Business-Networking-Integrated-Report ).

The vision to mobilize, expose and sensitize young fellows, to link two distant regions of the world for the good of both, to make new friendships and reaffirm old; all together the vision of inspiring, envisioning, encouraging, boosting and employing generations of young Europeans and Asians has become truth in September 2009 and again in early summer of 2010 to be repeated again early autumn of 2012. Affiliations and strong personal and professional bonds are created, they are to live and prosper. It is fair to say that the BFA 2009

and BFA 2010 participants are the young professionals who developed affiliation and strong personal and professional bonds with the ASEAN countries they visited, and these precious links are here to stay for many decades to come.

To effectively challenge the exceptionalism, ignorance and anti-intellectualism necessitates the constant efforts. This voyage is to continue eastward (CA, SEA) and westward (NAFTA, MERCOSUR), and Prof. Bajrektarevic has the sincere hope that business and governmental entities (on this or other sides of ocean) will recognize that the undertaking is not only about us, but also very much about the societies and business, and how we want to see out youth in the near future. For the third consecutive time, the Business Focus Study Trip will take place in Southeast Asia/ASEAN. From 07th to 23rd September, the IMC senior students and graduates over 30 of them will spend a week in each Indonesia/Jakarta and Thailand/Bangkok. The program will include ASEAN HQ, UN ESCAP, content intensive meetings with academia and practitioners (some 60 hours) as well as the rich intercultural exposure (some 40 hours). The program details and itinerary specifics will be available by end of August 2012.

Thailand
The Kingdom of Thailand, formerly Siam, is a country that is not only known for its tourist industry, Buddhist temples and long-reigning monarch. Thailand is so much more.

Facts Full name: Kingdom of Thailand Population: 69.5 million (UN, 2011) Capital: Bangkok Area: 513,115 sq km (198,115 sq miles) Major language: Thai Major religion: Buddhism Monetary unit: 1 baht = 100 satangs Main exports: Food including rice, seafood and live animals, office equipment, textiles and clothing, rubber GNI per capita: US $4,420 (World Bank, 2011)

The Kingdom of Thailand is a country in Southeast Asia, bordering Laos and the Kingdom of Cambodia to the east, the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia to the south, and the Andaman Sea and Myanmar to the west. Thailand is the world's 51st-largest country in terms of total area,

Business Focus ASEAN 2012

Page 1 of 137

with an area of approximately 513,000 km2. Furthermore it is the 20th-most-populous country, with around 69.5 million people. The capital and largest city is Bangkok, which is Thailand's political, commercial, industrial and cultural hub. About 75% of the population is ethnically Thai, 14% is of Chinese origin, and 3% is ethnically Malay; the rest belong to minority groups including Mons, Khmers and various hill tribes.

Thailand is an emerging economy and considered as a newly industrialized country. After enjoying the world's highest growth rate from 1985 to 1996 averaging 12.4% annually. As such, Thailand has been one of the great development success stories, with sustained strong growth and impressive poverty reduction. In the decade that ended in 1995, the Thai economy was one of the world's fastest growing at an average rate of 8-9% per year. After recovering from the Asian Crisis of 1997-1998, the Thai economy took off again, with growth averaging about 5% per year in the period 2002-2007. Primarily due to the high rates of economic growth, poverty has been falling steadily since the late 1980s. Over the last decade, poverty has been reduced from its recent peak of 21% (a result of the 1997 crisis) to about 8% in 2009. Poverty in Thailand is primarily a rural phenomenon, with 88% of the country's 5.4 million poor living in rural areas.

However, benefits of Thailand's economic success have not been shared equally, with some regionsparticularly, the North and Northeastlagging behind the rest of the country in terms of poverty reduction. Furthermore, in 2010, Thailand's economic growth slowed because of global economic conditions and political uncertainty. However, Thailand's economic activity is gradually returning to normal, with quarterly economic growth rates now closer to the levels often seen before the global financial crisis began in 2008. As a result of sensible economic policies, Thailand continues to make progress towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and is likely to meet most of the MDGs on an aggregate basis.

The maternal mortality and under-five mortality rates have been greatly reduced and more than 97% of the population, both in the urban and rural areas, now have access to clean water and sanitation. Nevertheless, there continue to be spatial variations with some regions and ethnic groups lagging behind, and there are some concerns about the environmental sustainability goal. http://www.worldbank.org/en/country/thailand/overview Due to Thailands progress in social and economic development the World Bank has upgraded Thailands income categorization from am lower-middle income economy to an upper-middle economy in July 2011.

Economic Forecast Real GDP in 2012 is projected to grow by 4.7 percent. It is supported mainly by household consumption and investments as part of flood rehabilitation and the governments consumption-stimulating measures. The economy is projected to grow by 5 percent in 2013 as manufacturing production fully recovers from the floods and the global economy sees a modest recovery. Exports in 2013 are expected to grow by 5.5 percent in US dollar terms, compared to only 3.6 percent in 2012. Domestic demand, particularly in investments, will continue its momentum from this year as foreign direct investment (FDI) rises sharply The main challenge in 2013 for Thailands growth continues to be the high uncertainty in global economic prospects, particularly related to the Eurozone crisis. To improve growth in the long-term, Thailand should prioritize skills development and the need to reduce inequalities in incomes and human development outcomes. Government spending could be prioritized from short-term stimulus programs and very costly ones like the paddy pledging scheme to long term development programs which targets lower income and vulnerable groups and also helps to reduce regional disparities.

Indonesia
Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia (Indonesian: Republik Indonesia Indonesian pronunciation: [rpblik ndonesia]), is a country in Southeast Asia and Oceania. Indonesia is an archipelago comprising approximately 17,508 islands. It has 34 provinces with over 238 million people, and is the world's fourth most populous country. Indonesia is a republic, with an elected legislature and president. The nation's capital city is Jakarta. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Malaysia. Other neighboring countries include Singapore, Philippines, Australia, Palau, and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Indonesia is a founding member of ASEAN and a member of the G-20 major economies. The Indonesian economy is the world's sixteenth largest by nominal GDP and fifteenth largest by purchasing power parity.

The Indonesian archipelago has been an important trade region since at least the 7th century, when Srivijaya and then later Majapahit traded with China and India. Local rulers gradually absorbed foreign cultural, religious and political models from the early centuries CE, and Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished. Indonesian history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources. Muslim traders brought Islam, and European powers brought Christianity and fought one another to monopolize trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku during the Age of Discovery. Following three and a half centuries of Dutch colonialism, Indonesia secured its independence after World War II. Indonesia's history has since been turbulent, with challenges posed by natural disasters, corruption, separatism, a democratization process, and periods of rapid economic change.
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 4 of 137

Across its many islands, Indonesia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups. The largestand politically dominantethnic group are the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, religious pluralism within a majority Muslim population, and a history of colonialism and rebellion against it. Indonesia's national motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity. The country has abundant natural resources, yet poverty remains widespread. Economy Indonesia has a mixed economy in which both the private sector and government play significant roles. The country is the largest SEA economy and a member of the G-20 major economies. Indonesia's estimated gross domestic product (nominal), as of 2012 was US$928.274 billion with estimated nominal per capita GDP was US$3,797, and per capita GDP PPP was US$4,943 (international dollars). June 2011: At World Economic Forum on East Asia, Indonesian president said that his country will be in the top ten countries with the strongest economy within the next decade. The GDP is about $1 trillion and the debt ratio to the GDP is 26%.The industry sector is the economy's largest and accounts for 46.4% of GDP (2010), this is followed by services (37.1%) and agriculture (16.5%). However, since 2010, the service sector has employed more people than other sectors, accounting for 48.9% of the total labor force, this has been followed by agriculture (38.3%) and industry (12.8%). Agriculture, however, had been the country's largest employer for centuries.

Culture Indonesia has about 300 ethnic groups, each with cultural identities developed over centuries, and influenced by Indian, Arabic, Chinese, and European sources. Traditional Javanese and Balinese dances, for example, contain aspects of Hindu culture and
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 5 of 137

mythology, as do wayang kulit (shadow puppet) performances. Textiles such as batik, ikat, ulos and songket are created across Indonesia in styles that vary by region. The most dominant influences on Indonesian architecture have traditionally been Indian; however, Chinese, Arab, and European architectural influences have been significant. Sports in Indonesia are generally male-orientated and spectator sports are often associated with illegal gambling.

A selection of Indonesian food, including roasted fish, nasi timbel (rice wrapped in banana leaf), sambal, fried tempeh and tofu, and sayur asem. Indonesian cuisine varies by region and is based on Chinese, European, MENA, and Indian precedents. Rice is the main staple food, served with side dishes of meat and vegetables. Spices (notably chili), coconut milk, fish and chicken are fundamental ingredients. The oldest evidence of writing in Indonesia is a series of Sanskrit inscriptions dated to the 5th century. Important figures in modern Indonesian literature include: Dutch author Multatuli, who criticized treatment of the Indonesians under Dutch colonial rule; Sumatrans Muhammad Yamin and Hamka, who were influential pre-independence nationalist writers and politicians; and proletarian writer Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Indonesia's most famous novelist. Many of Indonesia's peoples have strongly rooted oral traditions, which help to define and preserve their cultural identities.

Introduction ASEAN
one vision, one identity, one community
All big things start with a vision, so did our BFA study trip. It was the vision of Prof. Anis H. Bajrektarevi. For the third consecutive time Prof. Bajrektarevi brought together over 30 students of different nationalities from three continents (attached to the IMC University of Austria) a unique possibility for us to get to know to ASEAN but also to broaden our horizons, to discover truly different cultures, to mobilize ourselves, to think out of the box, to make new friendships and to form our own opinion. For all of us, this trip was an exceptional experience and for some it was much more we understood and we learned. We undertook a truly unique journey physically and mentally.

In the framework of the IMCs EXPORT Program, our professor has concepted and developed a unique program already by 2009 to link the best of public diplomacy with useful business networking. It is aid at to bring together senior students and recent graduates to contrast, compare and analyze two different countries, each of ASEAN, namely the Business Focus ASEAN BFA !!
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 7 of 137

In this world we have many vibrant and dynamic regions, which are economically successful and impressive. However, Asian countries are of particular interest for international businesses, diplomacy as well as for young professionals and students. The IMC fellows soon understood why there is a saying like this. With this report, we try to share our understanding, our experiences and our appreciation. In order to get to know the two countries as well as ASEAN a little bit more, our professor organized a lot of interesting events for us. We had a lot of speakers during these two really interesting weeks. They informed us about ASEAN, about Thailand and Indonesia in general and also heard a lot of interesting things about the Indonesian Stock Exchange for example. Some of our speakers were for example: Mr. Eduard E. Sugiri (Honorary Consul of Austria in Bandung), Mr. Wolfram Kalt (Director South Pacific Viscose), H.E. Ambassador Andreas Karabaczek, H.E. Ambassador Julian Wilson, Mr. Siswo Pramono, Mr. Imam Pambagio, H.E. Ambassador Johannes Peterlik, H.E. Ambassador David Lipman, Osama Rajkhan, Ms. Mia Mikic, and many more. And surely, one of our biggest angels and strongest advocates - H.E. Wesaka I. Puja, Director-General for the ASEAN Affairs of the Indonesian Foreign Ministry, and former Indonesian Ambassador to Austria who was indispensable for the great outcome of our trip in both 2010 and again in 2012. Huge gratitude and enormous thanks to this great visionary official and humanist of little words but big deeds to all of us!!

In theory, one can always learn about certain countries, about their histories and their facts. But, in order to truly understand a country one has to experience it personally. One cannot think out of the box without hearing different opinions. Therefore this trip is probably one of the most valuable study trips for students to strengthen their own opinions, to explore and to enrich our way of thinking. For many of us this was our first trip to Asia and we were therefore very curious, we explored warm heartedness, hospitality, and cultural diversity. We met people with a completely
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 8 of 137

different background, different values and attitudes. Sometimes little things happen, which allow us to appreciate much more what we have and help us to stop complaining about things we do not have. Although each single student has its own story, background and own identity we share common beliefs that is why many of us sooner or later have experienced a cultural shock when we entered Indonesia and Thailand. A cultural shock is not a bad thing at all it just makes you thinking. Thinking what life is all about and where you see your path. A trip like this can accelerate to figure it out; at least it broadens your horizon. We are inviting you to learn more about our impressions, all the events and our guest speakers. First of all we would like to express our deepest gratitude to the person who made this trip possible Dr. Anis H. Bajrektarevi. We want to thank him for all his efforts and the time he spent preparing this trip. Our professor, the Chairperson of the International Law and Global Political Studies Division of our University wants us to be critical individuals and to think out of the box, to see for ourselves and that is something we truly appreciate. Now we would like to wish you enjoyable reading and hope that many other students will get the chance to participate in one of the trips of our most generous professor.

Daily Reports
09th of September 2012 Visit to Tangkuban Perahu (Volcano) Asia-Africa Museum Bandung The center of Sundanese Culture: Saung Angklung Udjo Dinner Reception hosted by the Honorary Consul of Austria in Bandung - Mr. Eduard E. Sugiri

On Sunday, September 9th 2012 our first day on Java - we visited the geological museum of Bandung, where we saw the oldest fossil that has ever been found in history. We learned about the cradle of mankind and the development of human life. After that, we experienced our first Indonesian market and got a first valuable insight into the local

atmosphere.

After the visit of the Asian African museum we enjoyed our first traditional Indonesian meal. This is the setting where the historic Asian African Conference took place on the 18th April, 1955. This was the historic day when 29 Asian and African countries, most of whom had just liberated

themselves from colonial rule, gathered together to determine their own future. The participating countries were: Indonesia, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Cambodia, China, Cyprus, Egypt,

Business Focus ASEAN 2012

Page 21 of 137

Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam and Yemen. This conference resulted in the Dasasila Bandung, which became the guideline for colonized countries to fight for their independence. The Dasasila Bandung also included the fundamental principles for promoting world peace and international cooperation. Moreover, the conference came up with a 10 Point declaration, the Bandung declaration, which became the cornerstone for the Non-Aligned Movement.

In the conference room where the Bandung conference was held we could find the Garuda Pancasila, which is installed above the stage. The Garuda, which means the eagle in Bahasa Indonesian, has the national motto: "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika", gripped by its legs, which means Unity in Diversity and represents the around 360 people that live in Indonesia. The shield represents the five principles of Indonesias philosophy, the belief in one supreme god (star), the Just and civilized humanity (chain), the unity of Indonesia (tree), democracy (bull) and Social Justice for the entire people of Indonesia (rice and cotton). The number of feathers symbolizes the date of the Indonesian Proclamation of Independence on August, 17th 1945. The well-organized excursion

continued with a Bamboo Afternoon Performance and we got familiar with the Angklung which is a popular instrument in the region. It is made of two bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. This spectacle was highly interactive and we were encouraged to participate. It was amazing to see the joy in the kids eyes while performing. In the very end we got to know an Indonesian who is holding the World Record in playing the Angklung with 8 000 people. He even told us

Business Focus ASEAN 2012

Page 22 of 137

that he plans to break his own record next year in Beijing when playing with 15 000 people. In the evening we were invited to the Peak Restaurant by the Indonesian Consul. The restaurant was located at the highest point of whole Bandung, from where we had an impressive panorama view over the city and enjoyed once more a wonderful Indonesian buffet. The consule (name?) welcomed us very warmly and we got the unique opportunity to discuss our expectations and first impressions of Asia with his Excellency himself.

Each and every one enjoyed this outstanding evening. The atmosphere was a rather informal one and we immediately felt at ease. On top of that, it enabled us to socialize with other Indonesians while listening to a very good live-band. What a wonderful start into this years BFA trip!

10th of September 2012 South Pacific Viscose (LENZING Group)

Company visit at South Pacific Viscose The sound of viscose production To gain firsthand business experience we visited one company each in Indonesia and Thailand. For our first whole-day company visit, we were given the opportunity to visit South Pacific Viscose (SPV) located in Purwarkarta which is about a two-hours drive away from Jakarta. The company is one of the worlds largest viscose producers and an affiliate of the Upper-Austrian Lenzing Group. We left our residence in Bandung early in the morning. While our bus driver and his crew were plagued as usual with interminable traffic jams and narrow roads we had the chance to catch a little glimpse of the fauna and countryside of Java. After an exciting ride we finally arrived at around 10 a.m. at the premises of SPV where we were warmly welcomed by the management team led by CEO Dr. Wolfram Kalt. The visit began with an insightful presentation of SPV in general. Plant executives Mr. Knoglinger and Mr. Bachknig jointly provided us with a comprehensive overview about the company itself, its history as well as an explanation on the manufacturing, use and application of its products. Essentially, SPV is considered to be one of the largest Austrian foreign direct investments: more than 750 millions Euros have been invested during the past 30 years. The company was actually founded by Indian competitors but later taken over by the Lenzing group. Today the company is run under Austrian management and employs a workforce of 1,800 people. Basically, viscose is used as a substitute for natural fibers such as organic cotton or silk. Buyers are mostly to be found in the textile and non-woven industry (e.g. medicine, skin & body care products). SPV views itself as a commodity business which means that raw materials are the determinant components in the final price. The most important ones needed for manufacturing viscose fiber are pulp, caustic soda, carbon disulfide, sulfuric acid, finish oils and others. In addition to that, it was very inspiring to hear and see how SPV addresses the challenge of meeting the huge demand for energy resources required for its production process: For instance, for producing electricity the company may rely on two own power plants with five coalBusiness Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 24 of 137

fired vessels. Moreover, viscose production requires huge amounts of water which the company pumps from the nearby Jatiluhur dam. For later use in production, the company further operates an own water-treatment plants with a second one nearly completed. The world market for viscose fiber is currently estimated to amount for 5 million tons per year. SPVs current largest investment is the construction of a fifth production line which will increase its total annual capacity to 310,000 tons. The investment is worth USD 130 million and is partly supported by the Indonesian government. Together with its other global affiliates Lenzing aims to reach a production output of 1.2 million tons per year. Mr. Knoglinger also portrayed some of key industries that SPV serves and mentioned that the main quality criteria for viscose fiber is its running performance when used in later production. After the presentations we were split into two groups and went off on a factory tour to learn more about the production process. We were very interested to witness closely the various steps literally from a sheet of pulp to a finished product ready for dispatch. The facilities we saw seemed all very well organized, highly automated and technologically advanced. The tour also increased our awareness for the high environmental protection and security standards SPV uses in its production. The factory tour was followed by an excellent buffet in the guest reception room. Over dinner, we were able to socialize with the management of SPV. It was interesting to hear about Indonesia from a different perspective and we also learnt a great deal about the living arrangements in the country. Since foreign work assignments entail huge challenges especially for the families, SPV offers its expatriates a village to life with own residences, swimming pool, indoor gym, kindergarten and soccer and tennis courts. The programme then continued with detailed briefings of the management board members: Mr. Wolfram Kalt, Mr. Johann Knoglinger, Mr. Rudi Kern, Mr. Deden Rusfiandi, Mr. Gernot Salcher and Mr. Mohammad Chowdhury reflected on their specific duties at SPV. Key topics in their presentations included SPVs specific business model, the individual career paths of Lenzing expatriates, typical day-to-day activities in the different departments and an analysis on the dynamics and challenges of business development in Indonesia. By this, it became crystal clear to
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 25 of 137

all of us why Lenzing is consistently outperforming its competitors. After each leader gave his speech we had the chance to participate in a question and answer session. One question which was posed for instance referred to the most important challenges SPV is currently facing. In response to this, Mr. Kalt pointed out that, although basic education has reached a reasonably satisfactory level, higher education is not enough developed in Indonesia. Consequently, SPV finds it difficult to recruit specialists and executive personnel. Other obstacles mentioned were the inadequate access route to the company or constraints related to the further extension of the SPVs premises arising from illegal settlers within the catchment area of the company. The final part of this multi-facet company visit was dedicated to handing over of our presents to Mr. Kalt and his team. After all, with the distance to the home country being more than 10,000 km, our handed-over sweets and delicacies were joyfully received. Summarizing we had an insightful day at SPV and would sincerely express our gratitude for the time and effort SPV has dedicated to our visit.

12th of September 2012 Visit to Indonesia Stock Exchange Interactive Session with officials from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy Media Nusantara Citra Tbk (the largest and integrated media company in Indonesia) Joint Networking buffet Ambassador call

PT Bursa Efek Indonesia In the morning of the 12th of September we enjoyed the unique and outstanding

opportunity to visit Bursa Efek Indonesia, the Indonesian Stock Exchange. The first

approximately 20 minutes we were given the chance to look around the facility and to see how a stock exchange looks from the inside. Frankly spoken, quite impressive. After that, a presentation of a stock exchange

employee was delivered to our group, which mainly consisted of Indonesian economic facts. Very interesting points such as the enormous economic growth Indonesia by 2050 will be the 7th largest economy in the world, far bigger than Italy or South Korea or the very decent demographic situation within the country Golden Age; by 2020, 180 Million working people with the average age of 35 years, meaning a very young and educated workforce, were explained in the presentation.

Another major topic has been of course the financial hardship and its following recession during 2007-2009. Interestingly enough, Indonesian economy has not been influenced at all, which can definitely be considered as a strong signal to further growth. What we also learned was that the country has quite surprisingly in regard of its vast commodity resources, a trade deficit, which is merely caused by great imports of capital goods. Our analyst though stated that by 2020 a trade plus could occur. Further explained by the employee, Indonesia should be kept in mind as a great place for Foreign Direct Investment, due to the fact that the country has the largest economy with the highest growth but also the lowest debt in South East Asia.
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 28 of 137

The problem of the Bursa Efek though is that foreign investors hold higher proportions of stock ownerships than Indonesians approximately only 400,000 local investors. To tackle this troubled issue, the Indonesian Stock Exchange is educating citizens about finance and stocks, merely in schools and universities.

Another issue to work on is the fact that only very few companies are listed, the majority in the finance and mining sector, although on the one hand the economy is growing on an extremely fast-paced and on the other hand the total net income of listed companies rose significantly during the last couple of years.

To sum it up, it has been an unforgettable experience to visit Indonesia Stock Exchange and to get first insights into how stock trade is managed and conducted.

ASEAN Secretariat

In the afternoon our group departed for the ASEAN Secretariat where an interactive session with the ASEAN Deputy General was scheduled. During this meeting we got a deeper insight into the history, duties and vision of the ASEAN community and we were invited to ask questions.

The ASEAN Secretariat was founded in Bangkok in 1967 by the Foreign Ministers of ASEAN. Its basic function is to provide greater efficiency in the coordination of the ASEAN organs and for more effective implementation of its projects and activities. The Secretariats vision is that by 2015, it will be the center of a strong and confident
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 29 of 137

ASEAN community that is globally respected for acting in full compliance with its Charter and in the best interest of its people.

The aims and purposes of ASEAN include accelerating the economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region through joint endeavors I the spirit of equality and partnership, in order to strengthen the foundation for a prosperous and peaceful community of ASEAN. It also tries to promote regional peace and stability through abiding respect for justice and the rule of law in the relationship among countries of the region and in adherence to the principles of the UN Charter. In addition, it wants to promote active collaboration and mutual assistance on matters of common interest in the economic, social, cultural, technical, scientific and administrative fields. Furthermore, the Secretariat wants to collaborate more effectively for the greater utilization of their agriculture and industries, the expansion of their trade, the improvement of transportation and communication facilities and the raising of the living standards of their peoples. Another goal is to promote Southeast Asian studies and to maintain close and beneficial cooperation with existing international and regional organizations that have similar aims and purposes and explore all avenues for even closer cooperation among themselves.

The current ASEAN member states include Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This discussion round was a great opportunity to gain deeper insights in the work and goals of the ASEAN community and also to talk directly to the people involved!

During this interesting evening we got the chance to improve our intercultural relations with some of the young diplomats, members of the ministry of foreign affairs, employees of South Pacific Viscose and of course, the ambassador himself. We really enjoyed talking to people from all over Jakarta and the atmosphere was really relaxing, mind-opening and accompanied by excellent Austrian food, what we highly appreciated.

Presentation in LLP- KUKM (Lembaga Pemasaran Layanan Koperasi Dan

COMPANY)

SMECO Indonesia Company is a business entity under The Ministry of Cooperative and SME with the main duty to promote and market Indonesian cooperatives, small and medium enterprises products.

The head of the marketing division of SMESCO Indonesia was giving a

presentation about the innovative idea of the facilitation of Indonesian SME exports.

In order to understand the importance of this project, some background information was provided. More than 99,9% out of 51 million business units in Indonesia is SME (including micro businesses), which contributes with a percentage of 53% to Indonesias GDP. Obviously, there are severe problems SMEs are facing: lack of capital, managerial skills and market access. Therefore, the government established
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 32 of 137

a business unit in March 2007, SMESCO Indonesia Company, to help SMEs to promote and market their products based on a B to B and a B to C approach.

The activities are carried out in the SME Tower, a promotion center in Jakarta, which provides facilities for exhibitions as well as permanent retail showcase for unique, top quality Indonesian products at the so- called UKM Gallery. Besides, there is a permanent display for the 33 Indonesian provinces where their best products are presented in the Paviliun Provinsi. Furthermore, Kuliner UKM provides modern retail management training to empower SMEs. For instance, in October 2012 a workshop about food packaging techniques will be organized. Due to financing reasons, some of the building areas have to be rented out to external companies, as SMEs do not have to pay for the display of their products.

Nowadays, 1200 enterprises are involved in the program, whereas this number is constantly increasing. After two years of operating SMESCO all types of companies are represented, also bigger ones, as the project is very successful and very often brings a huge development.

The application process is a rather easy; sellers from the Indonesian provinces bring their products to SMESCO where the quality of the product is assessed and evaluated. In most if the cases products are changed to make them more attractive for customers, so to say packaging, for

example. Professional staff in the SME tower in Jakarta does the retailing and selling, which brings that the the who from

advantage producers usually remote places do not have to take care of the products any longer.

As already mentioned above, the participation for producers is free of charge. Therefore, the consumer has to face higher prices than offered by competitors (about 30% higher). Nevertheless, SMESCO guarantees high quality, application of human rights principles in the manufacturing process and fair trade policies.

To conclude it can be stated that SMESCO Indonesia is a very successful pilot project with a promising outlook for the future, offering nice high- quality products from all over the country in a quiet and pleasant atmosphere and is definitely worth a visit.

Presentation at Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin Indonesia)

The Indonesian Champer of Commerce and Industry, Kadin Indonesia, is the only business organization established by law and can descried as an umbrella organization of 33 regional branches throughout the country. It counts 175 business associations, works in cooperation with the government and serves the business community. Kadin Indonesia is privately financed through membership fees, different services it provides, for example trade origin certificates and donations or funding from members. Participation is not obligatory for Indonesian businesses.

The afternoon program started with a very interesting introduction of the son of the famous Indonesia ex- president of the years 1998 and 1999, Bacharuddin Jusuf

Afterwards, the German Senior Advisor at the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Oliver Oehms, was talking about the Growth Engine Indonesia.

Indonesia has had an economic growth even during the financial

crisis, which in the year 2009 was the third rate largest in Asia. growth With

regards to the GDP Indonesia can be

seen as an economy of considerable size (approximately 847.000 billions of US dollars GDP), whereas the middle class is rising rapidly. During the last 11 years, the GDP per capita has doubled, from 2000 US dollars to more than 4000 US dollars from the year 2000 until 2011. Oliver Oehms states that 10% of the population earns more than 30% of the nations household. In his opinion, consumption can be seen as the driver of the economy. Besides, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is an important issue when it comes to the economic performance of Indonesia. FDI is growing due to the improved investment climate, strong macro- economic fundamentals and availability of qualified manpower. In 2011, the total investment was 19,5 billion US dollars, whereas 30% out of that are joint projects, 26% have its origin in Singapore, 21% in Asia

(excluding Singapore) and 14% is contributed by Europe. The remaining 9% come from Africa and the Americas.

The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry supports foreign investors and businesses as it is an active partner in reform, it contributes as an Economic Roadmap to the government and in 2009 it has started a Business Support Desk serving international and domestic investors, traders and sourcing companies.

14th of September 2012 University of Indonesia Interactive Session with the students of the Faculty of Economy Visit to Taman Mini Indonesia

The program for our last day in Jakarta, before travelling further on to Bangkok, started again with a bus trip. Traffic turned out to be quite good and therefore we reached within 90 minutes the first destination of our todays agenda, the campus of the University of Indonesia in Depok.

Interactive Session with the Students of the Faculty of Economy, University of Indonesia Depok is a small city in the outskirts of South Jakarta. The campus is huge! It comprises an area of about 320 hectare, and it is also known as the green campus. There are four ecosystem components on the campus, which are:
Physical building and green landscape buffer of 170 ha, Water ecosystem of 30 ha (including 6 lakes), City forest area of 100 ha, and Supporting facilities and infrastructure, including environment buffer of 12 ha.

More than 33,000 students and more than 7,300 staff are regularly using the facilities provided at the campus.
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 37 of 137

After we had reached the building of the Faculty of Economy, our hosts provided us with a warm welcome followed by a short introduction about the University of Indonesia given by Agita Nalsalia, the Secretary General of the Management Student Society. In order to exchange our different experiences easily, Agita asked us to mingle by simply exchanging our seats. Lively conversations among students sitting next to each other immediately emerged. Following this first get together we enjoyed three amazing presentations held by our hosts. In his first presentation Muhammad Fadel provided us with a Short Introduction to Indonesian Economy. The growth figures he presented to us pointed all into one direction upwards. An interesting information was that Micro Enterprises contribute with around 33% to Indonesias GDP, they employ 91% of the countrys workforce, and they count for about 98% of Indonesias enterprises. Mardhutilla Amalia was then talking about Indonesias Young Entrepreneurs. He provided us with three success stories of former students who are meanwhile running successful businesses. He also presented us the latest trends for businesses, which start to develop from profit oriented to green businesses and now to social oriented businesses. Finally, Jayu Piamudya dealt in her presentation Indeed, we need people: Students for Society with various community development programs that have been established by students to support different groups of Indonesias population. After this comprehensive information and a short Q&A session we enjoyed another 45 minutes with our new friends on the campus and a lot of picture being taken.

Visit to Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII) On our way back to Jakarta we visited Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII), which is a large cultural based recreational area. The journey through the park provides you with an insight to Indonesias manifold culture. The idea to build a small -scale Indonesia goes back to the former first lady of Indonesia, Siti Hartinah, and was publicly presented at a convention in 1970. Two years later, in 1972, the Harapan Kita Foundation started the Indonesian Miniature Project. In total the TMII comprises 14 museums: PurmaBhakti Pertiwi Museum, Soldier Museum, Indonesian stamps Museum, Pusaka Museum, Transportation Museum, Electricity & New Energy Museum, Telecommunication Museum, Penerangan Museum, Sports Museum, Asmat Museum, Komodo Zoological Museum and Reptile Park, Insects Museum, Research & Technology Information Center, Oil & Gas Museum, East Timor Museum and finally the Indonesia Museum. Pavilions in the park feature the different provinces of the archipelago, their different architecture, and they also show traditional household appliances, clothes, art, and handicraft. Taman Mini also provides information about the various ethnic groups and the differences in lifestyles. We had also a ride with the cable car inside the park, which conveys the dimension of Indonesia from a birds eye view. During your ride you can follow a reconstruction of the archipelago in a large lake beneath the cable car.

Invitation for dinner, hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia and the Indonesian Embassy in Austria The third official part of todays program was a very pleasant invitation for dinner hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia and the Indonesian Embassy in Austria. We had been cordially invited to the roof terrace of Plaza Semanggi where we not only enjoyed our last dinner in Indonesia but had also time for further small talk with Ibu Miranda from the Indonesian Embassy and Pak Ito from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The great view and the illuminated skyscrapers in the immediate vicinity provided also the atmosphere to reflect the impressions one had gathered in the past 7 days being guest in this fascinating country.

17th of September 2012 Company visit at HFELE Thailand Networking dinner with Austrian expats C&C restaurant

On Monday, 17th September the official part in our 2nd host country started with a company visit at Hfele Thailand. It is the German-based group that manufactures and supplies hinges, drawer systems, architectural hardware, and other related fittings for the joinery, furniture, interior fitting, and hardware supply industries. We left the hotel at 9am and the right hand of the CEO, Mr. Frank Heyer (Supply Chain Director), welcomed our group at 10am at the Hfele Logisitcs Center, Bangkok. Together with his assistant, Ms. Buppha Samgkam, he showed us around the modern logistic facility where Hfele employs 200 employees. All the essential steps of the logistics processes were explained in detail: incoming articles, storing, picking operations, packaging, sending.

The highlight was the demonstration of a picking operation. High-end forklifts are picking requested items from the more than 3,000 articles that are stored in the highest wracking system (17m) in Thailand. To optimize the precision of the forklifts
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 41 of 137

the machines operate on a special floor. Cables that are integrated into that floor keep the forklifts in line and ensure safety and precision. Students were invited to take a ride with the forklift to experience a picking operation close to the action! Mr. Heyer explained that Hfele keeps 27mio Euros of stock. Interesting fact: One of our competitive advantages is that we carry a lot of extra stock. That is very important for our business, because unlike Europeans, Thais do not plan much ahead. Here we are going the extra mile, and it pays off! Due to the healthy growth during the last years, two extra warehouses had to be rented. Hfele is currently planning on enlarging the logistics and warehousing facilities. Mr. Heyer explained that there is still enough space for an enlargement on the property where the logistic center is located. The tour ended with refreshments in the entrance area at 11:20am. Before the second part of our Hfele visit, which was going to take place at the Headquarter, we were invited to a typical Thai Restaurant by the company.

At 1pm we arrived at Hfele Thailands headquarters in Bangkok. This building does not only serve as headquarters, but also as a modern designer showroom.
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 42 of 137

The next topic on the agenda was a company presentation by Mr. Heyer. We learned about the history of Hfele that started as a small hardware shop in Germany in 1923. After WWII internationalization began and Hfele expanded successfully to todays 35 fully owned subsidiaries around the globe. A lot of us were surprised to hear that Hfele Thailand is the largest subsidiary in Asia, much larger than the Hfele operations in China and India. Thailand is the Asia-Hub for Hfele!, Mr. Heyer explained. Hfele Thailand was founded in 1994; long before the Chinese or Indian subsidiaries, because Hfele was facing legal issues concerning ownership in these countries. Supplying 700 dealers in Thailand through its own delivery department, Hfele Thailand expects to achieve a turnover of 70mio Euros in 2012. Besides company history and key figures we learned about the sales process and sales channels of Hfele in Thailand, important cultural differences, market growth potential, marketing strategy and tools, CSR projects and HR specifics in Thailand. Directly after the presentation we had a very interesting Q & A session. The visit ended with a family picture in front of the Hfele Thailand headquarters at 3.30pm. All in all the presentation was very valuable for us to get a feeling about doing business in Thailand. It was a pleasure listening to Mr. Heyer, who is an extremely competent and knowledgeable expert on doing successful business in Thailand. The atmosphere during the whole day was very casual and interactive, which made it easy to ask a lot of questions. Some good news at the end: Mr. Heyer informed us about the possibility of doing internships at Hfele Thailand. With the words We are always looking for new talent, he encouraged us to send applications for internships directly to Hfele Thailand or to the German headquarters.

Let me also take this opportunity to thank you for the organization and making happen this BFA study trip. It was a good program and I think that the company visits were a good enrichment for the export students. I am looking forward to yet another of these trips to Vietnam and Myanmar/Burma or maybe even in a different region as e.g. Central Asia with Kazakhstan. All the best Chris

The further topics covered during this exciting day of speeches and workshops were the development of the economies in the ASEAN/South-Asian Pacific area and the macroeconomic policies applied as well as some details about how the ASEAN community works together within their common vision. Furthermore, we discussed different statistics and economical numbers in the following workshop. After a strengthening lunch, we could follow a presentation inviting us to invest in the ASEAN area and explaining the details of foreign direct investment and trade in the ASEAN countries, which was highly interesting to our fellow students of export-oriented management. Additionally, we were presented with the current and future developments of transnational railway and highway networks in Asia and ASEAN. This was especially interesting to fellows who were thinking about investing or building up business in or with Asian countries. We departed from ESCAP after taking a wonderful family photo in and in front of the UN building and drove to a harbor at the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. From there, we started our river boat cruise down and up the river, including a fantastic dinner and local food, to celebrate the 100th event organized under the premises of Prof. Anis Bajrektarevic, Chair International Law and Global Political Studies at the IMC FH Krems.

20th of September 2012 Day-long excursion WWII Cemetery WWII Museum River Kwai Bridge Kwai Railroad ride Floating-house Lunch Bamboo rafting Elephant trekking/riding Waterfalls This day was dedicated to a day-long excursion to experience some of Thailands nature and history. An organized guided tour was planned to give the BFA 2012 participants an insight into the countrys natural, cultural as well as historical perspective outside of the borders of its capital city, Bangkok. The first stop was the WWII Museum in Kanchanaburi and we agreed to meet at 6:30am in the lobby of the hotel. One of the first cultural lesson we learned, was that people in Asia think of time and in particular punctuality a little bit different than the people in the West. All participants were ready to go on time but we had to wait for all three organized minivan buses to arrive. Despite a still very early-morning pickup, everyone seemed excited and somewhat awake after discovering Bangkoks nightlife. Most were looking forward to a day of history and adventure ahead. The pickup van took us straight to Kanchanaburi, Thailand's third largest province, and famed for its World War II historical sites and breathtaking scenery.

Kanchanaburi and the WW2 Museum Kanchanaburi is definitely a good way to escape the busy life of Bangkok with field, forest and stream. It is a spot for people who want to experience a soft version of trekking. Our plan included activities like elephant rides, short hikes and bamboo rafting. The town is located in a very fertile valley, where one can see a lot of sugarcane fields. Apart from outdoor activities we did we also learned that this place is very well known for its Buddhist temple caves where worshippers gather to pray.

Our first stop was at the WW2 Museum which is a collection of a lot of WW2 war stories in photographs and instruments. It is located on the bank of Kwai river nearby the bridge on the river Kwai.

River Kwai Bridge Before lunch we went to the see the famous River Kwai Bridge and its surrounding area. This bridge was made famous by its dramatic story behind it but all in all is not as impressive as it is said to be. The bridge was first built in 1943 and the materials for it were brought from Java by the Imperial Japanese Army. The bridge was bombed a few times in 1945 and was rebuilt after the war. We took a long walk on the bridge back and forth and some of us also went to some neighboring Chinese temples which were just located nearby the bridge.

Bamboo rafting Bamboo rafting was another activity we did that they. We were divided in two groups, so when the first group went rafting the other one was elephant riding. Before going on the boat, each of us was equipped with a life jacket. Afterwards, when everyone was seated the exciting journey on the river started. This activity was really fun and we were lucky that the sun was shining. Thus, during the boat trip we could enjoy the nice view and we were even allowed to jump into the water. Approximately half an hour later we returned to our starting point and we were heading to the cute elephants.

Elephant riding and the waterfall Elephant riding was also a very nice

experience. We were always riding in pairs on an elephant and some of the riders let us ride alone while they took some pictures of us. Others could even sit on the elephants head. The round we made was pretty great as there were ups and downs which felt really exciting while crossing them, when sitting on these gorgeous animals. When we arrived back again we were heading to our next stop, namely to the waterfall. As we arrived at the waterfall we were really impressed by its beauty. Each of us was enjoying that wonderful view and taking a lot of great pictures. Apart from this we could go

swimming and climb up to stand directly under the waterfall. It was a really a great

experience.

21st of September 2012 Courtesy Call Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs Austro-Thai relations - 100 years togehter ASEAN Community and the Future of Thailand Tour de Table

Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs On Friday 21st September in the morning we departed to the Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We were welcomed by the Director-General for European Affairs, Mr. Sarun Charoensuwan.

Then a highly interesting speech by Mr. Phanpob followed, giving insights about the relationship between ASEAN and the EU. He also pointed out some differences between these two ideas. Firstly he stressed that ASEAN should be seen beyond its 10 member countries as it also has to deal with challenges outside of ASEAN. Even though the 2015 targets will serve an important milestone it will not bring as much freedom as is enjoyed in EU at the moment (e.g. free movement of people will only apply to 7 professions and different languages cause a further barrier for those). While the EU has a clear regulatory bodies, the ASEAN change drivers are joint ideas and intent. Bilateral trade is already established between the EU and ASEAN countries, but Mr. Phanpob points out that an EU-ASEAN FTA would be of more
Business Focus ASEAN 2012 Page 51 of 137

value. Furthermore, we learned that creating jobs would be difficult due to the lacking commission.

Still, the greatest challenge of ASEAN will be the integration of the 10 different countries, especially as some are more prosperous than others. Therefore, the People-to-People initiative was established. The following discussion dealt with topic like food security and how the essential integration should take place. After having more informal exchange with staff members of the Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a family photo we enjoyed a free afternoon. Some of our group discovered the city center with the markets and palaces; others relaxed with a Thaimassage or went shopping. In the evening, most of us met for dinner to exchange experiences and make plans for the next day.

EXPECTATIONS/NUMBER OF STAYS IN ASIA As I am widely travelled internationally, but have never been to Asia before, this BFA trip is a very special opportunity for me. During this trip I would like to take the chance to get to know the Asian culture as well as the Asian people better. The most countries in Asia are fast developing countries, which will definitely have an important impact on our future, it is essential for me to know how to conduct businesses in these regions and how to communicate with people from a totally different culture.

EDUCATION

Lukas Grabler

17th of February 1986 Austrian lukas.grabler@fh-krems.eu

After attending High School I obtained my A-Levels at a technical school in the field of mechanical and plant engineering in 2005. Since I am interested in globalization and economics I focused on an international education at the International University of Applied Sciences IMC Krems. 2010 I graduated from the Export-Oriented Management Program with the focus on International Management & Business and Intercultural Management. In my third year I had the opportunity to study at the UDEM Universidad de Monterrey in Mexico, later in Canada at the Wilfried Laurier University. Currently, I am enrolled in the Masters Program Banking and Finance in Vienna. PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE Besides my theoretical education I gained some hands-on experience while I was working in Great Britain, Germany and Vienna. During my studies I did an internship with ATEC-PPS in Vienna, who used to be an EPC Contractor of cogeneration and gas-steam power plants. Within the departmet of Sales & Marketing I contributed to the tendering process, contract drafting, wrote press releases of the current site in Turkey and elaborated a worldwide energy analysis. During my placement in the UK I worked with Fischer Connectors to not only connect the world but implement an ERP system. I was in charge of the internal and external communication of KPIs in the course of Lean Manufacturing and conducted a variety of market analysis. In 2011, I contributed to the development of the business model of a start-up called clearkarma.com. Besides I have been working in Sales as a Sales Controller with a Swedish organisation. LANGUAGES: My native language is German. I have always been fascinated by the different sounds of languages and its hidden values. After having started to speak English I spared no effort to reach a high level. Beyond German and English I am fluent in Spanish and capable of communicating in Russian. EXPECTATIONS/NUMBER OF STAYS IN ASIA I have not been to Asia yet but I very much look forward to visiting Bangkok, Jakarta and its surroundings. There are a couple of reasons why I look forward to exploring this economic area of the world. Not only do I expect to gain a political insight and have round table discussions with expatriates and executives but also to learn about their culture, which I believe is a benefit for the diversity of learning and future organisations. I am also interested in the role of the ASEAN as a financial centre and its synergies between government, industry and society. I believe that this BFA trip with a touch of business and goal is a great opportunity for students to extend their knowledge and it will be a memorable occasion.

EDUCATION In June 2010 I graduated from the Hertha Firnberg Schulen, where I attended the International Career Promotionprogramme, a project initiated by the European Union to foster the potential of linguistically talented, committed and performance oriented students. I chose the study branch of Sales and Catering Management with emphasis on international communication in business a class that ideally combined English and French with current economic and business matters. Coaching, E-learning and intensive communication and presentation training but also English as aworking language were among the core benefits of my education. At the moment I am studying Export Oriented Management at the IMC. PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE In 2008 I did an internship at the Cote dAzur with Pierre & Vacances for three months to enhance my French skills. Last summer I worked for 2 months in the Expatriate Service (International Human Resources) at the OMV Headquarters. Right now I am working with BMW, Qualifications systems. The work of my department is very project oriented. Therefore I participate in projects e.g.: concerned with the future of the retail segment or the Migration of Austria to another System for Dealer qualification

LANGUAGES At school I had English as language of instruction, just like at the IMC. In 2007 went to Chile for a semester, one year after that I did an internship in France, at the Cote dAzur. The 3rd semester of my studies I spent in Madrid. Furthermore, I study Russian at the IMC.

EXPECTATIONS/NUMBER OF STAYS IN ASIA Unfortunately, I have not been to Asia yet, but I am already very much looking forward to get in touch with the many diverse cultures, languages and traditions. I think the Ambassador Series was a strong motivation to join this study trip. I am looking forward to learn about the economic interrelations and gather information of the political situation. Moreover, it will be interesting to learn how Europe and the European Union are seen in the rest of the world.

The BFAs unique setup offers a content rich software of how to do business there as well as the intercultural know -how and political sensing. SEA and Malaysia are of particular interest to me as I did my internship at the Austrian Embassy in Malaysia (directly assisting the State visit of President Fischer in fall of 2010). In addition, the current events in SEA depict a very dynamic situation which is very interesting for the students to get accurate first-hand insights from experienced people who actually live and work in the region and thus have a greater understanding of the situation. This makes me feel that this program in South-East Asia constitutes a great benefit for all the participants.

Apart from studying, I work at the student-managed consulting company StuCon Junior Enterprise, where we consult companies in different areas, including sales strategy, web & IT services, marketing, research and congress/event management.

Currently I am the International Manager of StuCon, and also of JADE Austria, the representation of Austrian Junior Enterprises to the European network & executive board. Before studying I did internships at UniCredit Bank Austria, TNS INFO Research and GFK NOP Media in London (both market research), apart from a lot of 3 day internships (Siemens, Opel, ACT research) in my young years.

I expect to gain cultural insight of SEA but also a broader overview of its business and international relations.

Now the BFA trip provides me with the opportunity to close the gap between dealing with theory and getting first personal experiences. Therefore I am looking forward to learn about the cultural, economic and political way of life in the regions we will visit. Furthermore I am looking forward to extending my network with many people for having interesting discussions and to enhance my future career.

EXPECTATIONS/NUMBER OF STAYS IN ASIA I have not yet had the chance to visit SEA. Nevertheless, I have a great personal interest in the region and treated several topics related to SEA in research papers. Currently I write my Bachelor thesis about the opening of Myanmar and its socio-economic development with the aim to further specialize on this country by obtaining an internship in a relevant institution. The BFA study trip represents the perfect opportunity to get in contact with the organizations and people that carry out research and work in the field of my interests.

Against the background:

Prof. Dr. Anis H. Bajrektarevic serves as the chairman of International Law and Global Political Studies at the University of Applied Sciences in Krems, Austria, and is the longest serving member of the EXP team. He himself teaches the Geopolitical Affairs; International Strategies (Sustainable Development); and International Public Law, Relations and Intl. & EU Institutions. Since the first EXP generation of 1999, every cohort of students (without exception) was taking all of his courses.

Students are encouraged to participate and establish an individual and comprehensive opinion on political, economic, legal and social science issues. The study of Human Development, Institutions and Instruments as well as the relation of state, individuals and international organizations to public law are major components of the curricular.

The IMC EXPORT Study Program encourages the development of foreign languages and hosts international events/visits and guest lectures which engage students in discussions and help develop their intellectual competence. Prof. Bajrektarevic has solely organized and chaired over hundred such events (nearly half of it in Geneva and Paris).

Students of the course International Public Law and Institutions have had the chance to visit more than 20 International FORAs during their study trip/s to Vienna, Geneva and Paris (Study-trip being itself unique undertaking in whole of Austria). The trips encourage the intellectual exchange between international organizations and universities. Students learn about international institutions by directly observing multilateral cooperation in three major European cities. This unique opportunity gives the students a practical approach and understanding of structure and procedures within international organizations. The newly developed concept by the Chairman Bajrektarevic is so-called Business Focus employability booster integrated seminar, in which fellows spend 2 weeks contrasting two different countries be it of Central Asia, ASAEAN or MERCOSUR countries. The BFA 2009 has successfully gathered 30 fellows of 7 nationalities being addressed by 40 speakers of 19 nationalities among which 4 ambassadors, senator, minister, late Malaysian king, and other high ranking experts. The BFA 2010 has gathered 32 fellows of 8 nationalities, being addressed by 42 speakers of 16 nationalities among which Deputy Secretary General of ASEAN, 4 ministers and 6 ambassadors with the venue at the respective Diplomatic Academies of Indonesia and Malaysia.
