“Europe and Asia have acquired their own experiences in dealing with financial crises and have respective strength and capacities to achieve growth. They should learn from one another, tap into their respective potentials and tie over the present difficult situation together”, said Ambassador ZHANG Yan, Executive Director, Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF). He was addressing the participants of the 8th Asia-Europe Economic Forum (AEEF) Conference, held in Brussels, Belgium (21-22 January 2013).

During the conference, Ambassador ZHANG announced that ASEF will join the organising consortium to support the AEEF programme for the next two years. Since 2006, the AEEF meetings have brought together leading economists, academics and policy makers from leading institutions in Asia and Europe. The programme serves as a platform to discuss the hottest economic and financial issues for both regions.

In joining the AEEF consortium, ASEF will team up with six renowned institutions from Asia and Europe. These include the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI), Bertelsmann Stiftung, Bruegel, Centre d’Etudes Prospectives et d’Informations Internationales (CEPII), Institute of World Economic and Politics – Chinese Academy for Social Sciences and Korea University.
