Oslo seminar

Oslo Seminar

21 September 2018

Speaking to the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) on 19 September Fraser Cameron spoke about how President Trump was pushing the EU and Asia closer together.

He argued that Asia had been shocked by Trump’s actions – withdrawal from the TPP, Paris climate change agreements, Iran deal, etc and increasingly looked to the EU as an anchor of stability in preserving the rules-based international system.

The trade deals with Japan, Korea, Singapore and Vietnam and the on-going negotiations with Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand were evidence of the EU’s outward approach to trade.

There was also growing cooperation in foreign and security policy as evidenced by Mogherini’s trip to Asia in August. 

The ASEM summit in Brussels in October would also boost EU-Asia relations.

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
