DurianASEAN is an online radio station established to create a platform to discuss the three key pillars of ASEAN; the political, economic and socio-cultural. This is executed through our daily 2-hour breakfast show, the ASEAN Breakfast Call, every morning from Monday – Friday. We allocate the first hour to news commentary and the latter to dialogues and interviews with regional experts on any pressing issue. DurianASEAN.com can be streamed at anytime from any part of the world.
ASEAN has also become an increasingly important economic power house in this region. With Malaysia taking over the chairmanship this year, along with the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), it is an aptly-timed venture into this global market of about 600 million in population.
Our target audience is the English-speaking population, whom is part of the elite community and is widely interested in the current affairs of ASEAN. Today, about 65% of DurianASEAN listeners are from the EU and North America.
Early this year, DurianASEAN was awarded the Gawad ASEANO Award by ASEAN Young Leaders Association in the Philippines. The award was presented to acknowledge our efforts in recognizing the importance of ASEAN and increasing awareness on ASEAN matters.
