Online Workshops of the 2nd Interregional EU-ASEAN Perspectives Dialogue started

On Saturday, IFAIR started the discussions regarding cooperations between the EU and ASEAN in four selected policy fields of interregional cooperation: development, the international financial architecture, trade and climate change.

In the following weeks, the 10 ASEAN and 10 European participants of each workshop group, that come from 13 different countries, will discuss their topic. The workshops are guided by our IFAIR moderators and expert advisors to help the participants elaborate insights and ideas that will be published in a paper and presented at our EU-ASEAN conference in Brussels taking place in June.

We hope that the following discussions will be just as interesting and productive as the kick-off meeting on Saturday and look forward to the results!
