Neumarkt (Austria)


This forum brought together 130 people for discussions, including European federalists from current and future EU member states. Notably, participants highlighted that the EU should play a more active role in diffusing tensions between North and South Korea and across the Taiwan Straits.

The forum also featured an ASEF-sponsored discussion session, titled "Europe's Integration, Seen From Asia." Albrecht Rothacher, then-Public Affairs Director at ASEF, spoke on recent initiatives for regional integration in Asia, which, in his view, still had a long way to go.
