This conference gathered 60 representatives from NGOs, the business sector, the academe, media, youth organisations, and research institutes to review the state of Asia-Europe relations with a focus on civil society partnerships and business links.
It was the second event of the “Connecting Civil Societies” series and a side event to the ASEM6 Summit, featuring plenary sessions and two workshops. Assigned workshop rapporteurs reported the outcomes on the workshop discussions at a concluding plenary open to ASEM officials and participants of the ASEF Editors’ Roundtable, which also took place in September 2006.
