Invitation 19th October 2016: The Future of EU-ASEAN Relations

19 October 2016

On 13-14 October EU and ASEAN ministers will hold their biannual meeting in Bangkok. Both parties will meet against a background of internal problems with many questioning the ability of the EU to find a way forward after Brexit and others questioning the coherence of ASEAN and asking whether the ASEAN Economic Community will live up to its promise. But there are huge opportunities for the EU and ASEAN to cooperate more closely in a beneficial way, whether in trade, security or tackling global problems.  To discuss the outcome of the ministerial meeting and to assess the prospects for the EU-ASEAN relationship, the EU-Asia Centre invites you to a panel discussion on 19 October from 1700-1830 in the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels.

Invitation Oct. 17th The EU-Australia FTA: Can the EU still do trade deals?

5 October 2016

The controversy over TTIP and CETA has led many to question whether the EU is still capable of negotiating and ratifying trade deals with third countries. There is a general trend against globalisation manifested by the rise in populist political parties across Europe and elsewhere. In these circumstances what are the chances of a successful free trade agreement with Australia? What are the priorities and what advantages would it bring to both sides? How would Brexit affect the negotiations?

To discuss these and other questions you are invited to a panel discussion from 1800-1930 on 17 October at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels. There will be a wine and cheese reception following the panel discussion.

27 September 2016

In the EU’s recent Global Strategy Federica Mogherini reiterated that the EU “will continue to support state-building and reconciliation processes in Afghanistan together with our regional and international partners.” To this end the EU is hosting a major conference in Brussels on 5 October which will include the President of Afghanistan and representatives from the US, China, Russia, India, Japan, the World Bank, UN and NATO.

The international community has now been involved in Afghanistan for 15 years but what has been achieved? What are the realistic prospects for Afghanistan? How long will the EU and others have to support the country? What are the political, economic and security trends? What are the priorities? How bad is corruption? How solid is regional support for Afghanistan and what are the hidden agendas?

Invitation: EU-China relations after Brexit

16 September 2016

Brexit has been a huge shock to the EU with implications for all major relationships including China with whom the EU is negotiating a bilateral investment agreement. The EU is also about to make a momentous decision on market economy status (MES) but how will Brexit affect this debate? The UK now seems to be revising its own very pro-China approach under David Cameron with Theresa May ordering a review of major projects including the Hinckley Point nuclear facility. It is timely, therefore, to consider these and other issues with the authors of a new book ‘The Politics of EU-China Economic Relations’at a panel discussion 1700-1830 on 27 September at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels.
