ASPAC Young Professionals Forum

One of FIDIC’s key objectives is to promote and encourage the development of Young Professionals in the Consulting Engineering Industry. In January 2013, FIDIC Young Professional Forum Steering Committee (YPFSC) announced the creation of two regional forums of young professionals within two FIDIC regions: ASPAC and GAMA.

Proposed by FIDIC YPFSC and supported by FIDIC, the 2013 ASPAC Conference faced a new agenda item: reformation of the ASPAC YPF. Strongly supported by FIDIC EC members and ASPAC Chairman, ASPAC Executive Committee officially approved the reformation of the ASPAC YPF. Key activities were identified as Research, Education and Networking.

The ASPAC YPFSC is made up of the following people:

  • Arpamart Chanmeka, Thailand
  • Cheolwoo Yeom, Republic of Korea
  • Jessica Jun, Republic of Korea
  • Kaveh Heshmati, Iran
  • Lim Lian Chong, Malaysia
  • Meiti Kramadibarta, Indonesia
  • Ngo Hoai An, Viet Nam
  • Patrick John R. Ramos, Philippines

  • Shah Izzni Talif, Malaysia
  • Takashi Matsuo, Japan
  • Trisha Leigh Lunas, Philippines
  • Yuan Sheng Lin, China Taipei
  • Yu Disi, China
