Corporate News


13 Jun 2013

ASEF Executive Director, Ambassador ZHANG Yan, will be giving an evening talk on Asia-Europe Relations: The Roles of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) in Singapore. The talk will be chaired by Prof. Kanti Prasad Bajpai, Professor & Vice-Dean (Research), LKYSPP.

The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), consisting of 51 members, encompasses almost 60% of the world’s population, 52% of the world’s GDP, and 68% of global trade. Established in 1996 to play a balancing role in a multi-polar world and to serve as a forum for dialogue, ASEM has opened a new chapter in Asia-Europe relations by going beyond the traditional bilateral formats.

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) is ASEM’s only permanently established institution and solely funded by voluntary contributions of the 51 ASEM members. Since its inception in 1997, ASEF has been supplementing the ASEM process by serving as a conduit for knowledge and good practices between the two regions. Ambassador ZHANG Yan will speak about the unique role, achievements but also challenges of ASEF as an inter-governmental organisation which links the governmental process with the civil society in Asia and Europe.
