  • The participation of one representative each from the European Union and the ASEAN Secretariat;
  • An agenda structured around the main topics related to the subject of the Seminar, with discussions held in closed-door working groups to allow a free and direct exchange of views;
  • An independent background paper prepared by the main rapporteurs and commissioned by the organisers. The background paper addresses the key questions and core issues of the Seminar topic so as to meet the information requirements for the diverse set of participants;
