In July, Asia Consulting was invited by the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to visit the island of Sumbawa. The purpose of the visit was to participate in a two day seminar on the protection and improvement of the rights of Indonesian migrant workers in ASEAN. With an expertise in ASEAN-EU relations, Asia Consulting was asked to compare the current situation in Europe and ASEAN. During the visit to Sumbawa, Rennie Roos spoke about current trends in Europe and how ASEAN countries could learn from the situation in Europe. Prior to the presentation at the district office, Rennie also participated in a live talkshow at a local radio station.
