The 20th ASEF Summer University (ASEFSU20) explored the role of transportation and trade in connecting Asia and Europe – in the past, present and future. 47 participants from 45 Asian and Europen countries traveled together for 3 weeks across China, Mongolia and the Russian Federation under the theme “Gateways of Asia and Europe: Connectivity by Land, Sea & Air”.
In conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process, ASEFSU20 explored the concept of “Connectivity” between Asia and Europe from 3 lenses: Human Connectivity, Trade and Economic Cooperation, and Transport. ASEFSU20 leveraged on the accelerating social and economic linkages between the 2 dynamic continents.
The journey passed through emerging economic corridors in these 3 countries where the participants had the opportunity to meet and learn from local communities and took upon real-scenario challenges on road, rail, maritime and air transportation. ASEFSU20 brought the young professionals and students together with government officials, businesses, academia and the civil society, and offered a top-tier environment for professional and personal development.
