7th ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Carnival

In conjunction with the Cambodia ASEAN Chairmanship 2022, the Young Entrepreneurs Association of Cambodia (YEAC) as the Chair of the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Council (AYEC) 2022 will host the 7th ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs (AYE) Carnival in the Kingdom of Cambodia in November.

Themed “Rise Stronger Together”, the 7th AYE Carnival calls for businesses and young entrepreneurs to overcome the disruptions brought by COVID-19 through digitalization, leadership, collaboration, and inclusive involvement of women in addressing the grand challenges of our times as we adapt to this new normal.

The ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Council (AYEC) is the official voice of young entrepreneurs in the ASEAN policy-making process, established in 2015 following the proposal by the ASEAN Business Advisory
Council (ASEAN-BAC) to the ASEAN Leaders.

It consists of a network of government endorsed young entrepreneur associations from all 10 ASEAN Member States.

The AYEC also formed the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Association (AYEA) in 2016.

The ASEAN Young Women Entrepreneurs Club (AYWEC) was
established in July 2021, endorsed by AYEC.
