We would like toexpress our appreciation to all the organizations, sponsors, volunteers and friends that made this happen.We dream of changing our society through social entrepreneurship. This dream had once seemed far awayand unattainable in the near future. But today, as we stand together here in Seoul, sharing with each other theunbelievable, amazing achievements and progress made over the recent years, we are now confident to thatthis once seemingly unachievable dream may soon become a reality.Poverty, unemployment, and environmental degradation, are some of the major problems facing Asianstoday. We believe that social entrepreneurship could be an alternative to address various crucial issues in themodern society such as imbalances and environmental destruction, etc. The sacrifices and the efforts madeby our forerunners who had predicted the future have not been in vain. Waves of long sought after changesare now seen all over Asia. We, who are gathered here are passionate to build upon these sparks of changesto bring about further innovations and advancements.We propose to do the following to promote the social entrepreneurship in Asia in order to build an alternativesociety encompassing all regions; ● With an entrepreneurial mind set, we will earnestly search for remedies to the problems faced in each nation. We will share successful models of social entrepreneurship that works in the unique geographical, economical, and cultural setting in Asia. ● We will cooperate and communicate with each other in solving the distinct social and eco- nomic problems facing each country. We will engage ourselves in dynamic knowledge exchange and promote innovation on the ASES Internet homepage using it as a platform for communication. ● We will support establishment of strong partnerships between government, business, and non-governmental sectors to solve social and economic problems and to achieve sustainable growth in business management. ● We will collaborate to promote an environment in which social enterprises in Asia can be sup- ported to success. ● We will present visions and goals designed to promote global wide cooperation and communi- cation among social entrepreneurs to bring about global changes and innovations.We will regularly hold summits and gather together for open discussions. We can no longer ignore the socialproblems. It is a reality that affects each one of us, and also our families and friends. The successful outcomesand inspiring stories from social enterprise experience should be shared with everyone in the world.
