ASEF Policy Panel at the 7th ASEM Culture Ministers Meeting

ASEF Policy Panel at the 7th ASEM Culture Ministers’ Meeting:

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) will co-organise a panel discussion with civil experts titled “Culture and the Creative Economy: What Opportunities for Asia-Europe Exchange and Collaboration?on 22 June 2016, alongside the 2nd Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) of the 7th ASEM Culture Ministers Meeting (ASEM CMM7) on 23-24 June 2016 in Gwangju, Korea.

The ASEM CMM7 attendees will discuss issues, trends and challenges relating to culture and the creative economy. The agenda of this Ministerial meeting builds on the on-going dialogue around Asia-Europe exchange and collaboration in creative industries and cultural heritage at previous ASEM Culture Ministers’ Meetings (2014, Netherlands; 2012, Indonesia; 2010, Poland).

An ASEF panel discussion will follow closely the topics of the Ministerial meeting, namely the future of information and communication technologies (ICT) in creative industries; traditional cultural heritage and the creative economy; and international cooperation for revitalising the creative industries.

The panel discussion will highlight good practices from Asia and Europe and identify opportunities and challenges for Asia-Europe collaboration in the creative industries. By addressing these issues, the panel hopes to offer some ‘food for thought’ for the Ministerial meeting.

Key messages from the panel discussion on 22 June will be presented to ASEM Culture Ministers on 24 June 2016.
