Summary Report of the EU Asia Centre and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Roundtable on EU-ASEAN and EU-China relations in Hong Kong

12 December 2016

Political changes, especially the election of Trump and Duterte, made the future very unpredictable. ASEAN needed to concentrate on its current agenda, deliver on connectivity, improve capacity building, labour mobility and reduce non tariff barriers. It should also promote labour mobility and civil society exchanges which might encourage an ASEAN identity. There needed to be a debate on amending the consensus principle and strengthening the institutions of ASEAN. ASEAN should raise awareness as a first step towards building an identity.

1st December 2016-"The EU and China in Africa – Prospects for Cooperation "

28 November 2016

Africa, often described as the lost continent, is rising fast despite many problems. There are 54 countries in Africa, many landlocked and very poor. There are many conflicts - Mali, Chad, South-Sudan, etc which show no sign of diminishing. Africa’s economic output is $1.6 trillion or just 2.5% of global GDP. But six of the world’s ten fastest growing economies are in Africa and it is expected that its population will increase from one to two billion by 2050.

Against this background both the EU and China are seeking new strategies to deal with Africa. The influence of China is rapidly increasing. Its exports to Africa have tripled in the past decade and now account for 20% of all imports. The EU’s and China’s agenda in and for Africa have often been perceived as being at odds. The annual EU-China discussions on Africa have produced few concrete results as regards possible areas for cooperation. This is perhaps rooted in the different interests, aims and profiles of both actors. While both entities seek to promote beneficial developmental models in Africa they proceed on very different principles.

Invitation November 15th 2016 - China's Future and Reporting EU-China

4 November 2016

The future of China is one of the biggest questions for the entire world. After two decades of spectacular growth the economy is now slowing down. But is it facing a hard or soft landing and what will the implications be for China and the EU? Politically President Xi has achieved more power and influence than his predecessors. But what are his plans for China? What is the basis for the China Dream? How is the ruling communist party (CCP) coping with the huge social changes in China? These are some of the issues on the agenda of two panel discussions organised by EU Reporter and the EU-Asia Centre from 1700-1900 on 15 November at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels

19 October 2016

On 13-14 October EU and ASEAN ministers will hold their biannual meeting in Bangkok.
