Greetings from Prita Kemal Gani, MBA, MCIPR, APR

Screen-Shot-2014-10-22-at-5.07.26-PMThe implementation of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) 2015 is already insight. Echo sounding of the markets in recent years has made business people think and work hard in dealing with this, so as not to lose out to the competition. In AEC 2015, there are nine pillars which exist in the mutual recognition agreement (MRA) and so far the PR profession has not yet been included. However, this does not mean the PR world is sleeping.

Dear APRN & Friends,


As another year draws to a close, it’s time to look back and reflect on the past 12 months. It is also a time to give thanks to everyone at APRN, partners and friends that have supported us right up to the end of 2018. Our special selected network of partners have helped us create and deliver exciting and very well organized events all over ASEAN. It is heartening to see the support from our past and new friends at APRN.


As one of the best highlights as the year ends, we were very pleased to have once again our friends from Global Alliance Communication and Management, who recently conducted their Executive Board Meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia. It is indeed a pleasure to have hosted the Executive Board Meeting and to gather and spend time again with close friends from Global Alliance. Thank you for the dedication, insight and creativity that you bring to your work every day on behalf of the people you serve around the world. I look forward to our new collaborations planned in 2019 and am very excited as we all welcome the coming New Year and move forward to meet the new challenges for our new agenda at ASEAN PR Network.


I am sure that the New Year will be as exciting as this year was, if not even better. On this occasion, I wish to thank my APRN Team for making all this possible and also appreciate the enormous contribution and support from members and friends of APRN.

I am excited for the coming holidays and look forward to reconnecting with you all in the New Year!
