MANILA, 23 May 2022 – On 23 May 2022, the JAIF Management Team (JMT) attended a virtual inception meeting of the ASEAN Mentorship for Entrepreneurs Network (AMEN) Phase 2. The primary objective of the meeting was to provide the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN-BAC) of the Philippines, which is the Proponent cum Implementing Agency of the JAIF project, with a briefing on essential JAIF rules and procedures based on the latest JAIF Handbook. Other objectives were to report the accomplishments of the AMEN Project Phase 1, completed in November 2019, and to discuss the indicative work plan and deliverables of the AMEN Project Phase 2.

The meeting was attended by the key stakeholders, such as the AMEN Project Management Office, ASEAN-BAC, AMEN project consultants, and the Enterprise & Stakeholders Engagement Division of the ASEAN Secretariat.

The AMEN Project Phase 2 is designed to pursue the same goals and objectives of the first phase: i) to set up a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) system that will help MSEs access the 3Ms (i.e., Money, Market and Mentorship); ii) scale up their operations; and iii) improve their profitability and sustainability. This phase 2 project will strengthen the AMEN Mentorship Institute with enhanced modules translated in the languages of ASEAN Member States and will allow 300 MSEs in the region to be mentored via online trainings.
