EU – ASEAN officials discussed further collaboration on trade

The 23rd ASEAN-EU Senior Officials' Meeting took place on 2 July 2015 in Brussels to discuss the ASEAN-EU Enhanced Partnership. Both side agreed to further develop cooperation on trade matters. They also recognised the positive role played by businesses in promoting the objectives of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Trade was not the only issue on the agenda as closer cooperation on environment and climate change or connectivity have also been discussed during the day. Thailand agreed to coordinate the action of ASEAN members.

As a next step, the ASEAN-EU Days in Milan on 23-30 September 2015 will give businesses the opportunity to engage with policy-makers from both sides to discuss opportunities to enhance business relations between Europe and ASEAN.
