“ASEM marks the highlight of the Asia-Europe dynamics this year. We also celebrate its 25th Anniversary, an excellent opportunity to take stock of what has been achieved all together and set out aspirations for the future.
ASEM is a unique platform for political dialogue between ourselves, between our policy makers, business and labour organisations, academics, think tanks and media, as well as our young people. ASEM has acted as a breeding ground for new policy ideas since its very inception.
Multilateral cooperation, and a strong Europe-Asia relationship in particular, is crucial for our global recovery. Covid-19 has impacted every country and region of the world, and every aspect of our lives. It shows how interconnected we are.
We believe it is important for all ASEM partners to work together to “build back better” — in a more green, digital, sustainable, and inclusive way.
The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an intergovernmental process established in 1996 to foster dialogue and cooperation between Asia and Europe. It gathers 53 Partners: 30 European and 21 Asian countries, the European Union and the ASEAN Secretariat.
ASEM addresses political, economic, social, cultural, and educational issues of common interest, in a spirit of mutual respect and equal partnership.
