The EU and the ASEAN Secretariat organised the first ever EU-ASEAN Run, bringing together over 1,700 European and ASEAN citizens on Jalan Sudirman and Jalan Sisingamangaraja. This year’s special edition of the annual EU Run commemorates a ‘triple anniversary’ – 40 years of EU-ASEAN partnership, 50 years since the founding of ASEAN and 60 years of the Treaties of Rome and the establishment of the EU. The runners donated more than 75 million rupiah to three foundations supporting the wellbeing and education of disadvantaged children in Indonesia. For more information, please see the press release.
