The Outcome of the ASEM 9 Summit – A European Perspective


The 9th Asia-Europe Meeting Summit (ASEM 9) will take place in Vientiane, Laos on 5-6 November 2012. The year 2012 already saw the accession of the EU to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (TAC) and an unprecedented series of high-level engagements. ASEM 9 will be culmination of what is already being called "The Year of Asia" for the EU.

This lecture will focus on the European Union's long history of engagement with Asia, dating back to the 1970s, and on ASEM's role in this regards in particular. It will further develop the arguement that it will remain in the common interest of Asia and Europe to deepen cooperation in politics, security, trade, finance and energy in ASEM as well as other regional cooperation frameworks.
