7 November: The Future of EU-Korea Relations

5 November 2018

The EU-Asia Centre and the KF-VUB Korea Chair invite you to a panel discussion on the Future of EU-Korea relations. The strategic partnership between the EU and Korea is strong and solid, as demonstrated by the 19 October summit between Presidents Tusk and Juncker with President Moon. But there is much more the two partners could do together, as illustrated in a new policy report by the KF-VUB Korea Chair, which identifies several areas in which cooperation could be strengthened to boost bilateral ties whilst promoting global security.

The discussion will be held on Wednesday 7 November 2018 from 15:00 to 16:30 at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, Brussels.

Invitation 9 Oct 2018: China and Russia in the EU Neighbourhood

27 September 2018

Russia and China are using their power and a variety of tools to extend their influence in the EU's Neighbourhood. What interests do they have in common? What separates them? Are both acting against each other in the region or do they have a common agenda against the EU’s integration and democratization efforts? 

The aim of the expert conference organized by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the EU-Asia Centre is to analyze China’s and Russia’s regional strategies in the EU’s immediate neighbourhood.

Invitation---Jun. 26th Implications of Brexit for Asia

11 June 2018

Brexit will have major implications for Asia. Japan, China, Korea and most other Asian countries made clear their preference for the UK to remain in the EU. All Asian countries are worried about their investments in the UK being subject to tariffs if the UK leaves the single market and customs union. They are also worried at the supply chain implications. While the UK seems to assume that it will be able to pursue quick, new bilateral trade deals with Asia, it is not obvious that the countries concerned agree. Prime Minister May has visited India and China without receiving any promises. Outside the EU, the UK will lose influence and struggle to live up to Asian expectations on geopolitical issues. There could be a loss of influence in the region for both the UK and the EU with broader implications for global trade and security? 

To discuss these and other issues you are invited to a panel discussion from 1700-1830 on 26 June at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels

Invitation April 12th - Blue China – Can the EU and China save our Oceans?

5 April 2018

The global ocean is our planet’s life support system providing our food, our weather and the air we breathe. But overfishing, pollution and climate change are severely damaging the ocean and its capacity to sustain life in the future. China is now among the world’s biggest ocean powers: it has the biggest fishing fleet, maintains the world’s biggest aquaculture industry, harvests and consumes more of the world’s seafood than any other nation, emits the largest volume of greenhouse gases and produces one third of the world’s ocean plastic pollution.

EU-ASEAN trade

Invitation February 27th - Prospects for EU-ASEAN Trade

16 February 2018

The 600m strong ASEAN community has become the centre of a global tug of war on trade. As the US under Trump retreats from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), China is stepping up its engagement through the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) while Japan and India are both strengthening their relations with ASEAN.

The EU has decided to go down the bilateral route, signing deals with Singapore and Vietnam, while still open to a possible bloc to bloc FTA. Talks with Thailand could restart as soon as there is a restoration of democratic rule. The EU, however, is caught between the business imperatives of seeking new trade deals and the reversal of democratic progress and human rights in some ASEAN members. In addition there are serious concerns about the EU’s ratification of the Singapore and Vietnam deals.
