In 2019, GAEE launched the Silk Road Project: Southeast Asia Month program[22][23] and organized a series of conferences with the theme "Education in the Age of Industry 4.0" with the co-operation of AIESEC and the Vietnam Union of Scientific and Technological Associations.[24][25] It also initiated a beta-testing program for its virtual learning portal with over one thousand testers.[5][26]

In the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, GAEE partnered with the Oxford University Philosophy, Policy and Economics Consortium to host webinars withleading economists such as Tim Harford and Rupal Bhansali.[27][28] It also organized business case competitions in India in cooperation with leading experts such as Vice President of Morgan Stanley Anjan Gupta.[29]

In October 2020, according to Big News Network, GAEE has partnered with the Democratic Youth Forum of Korea and the Ministry of Unification of South Korea to hold an economic writing contest on the liberalization of the North Korea's economy.[32]
