Through this forum, they learnt about different business cultures and discussed ways to improve business co-operation and build a sustainable network between Asia and Europe.

The forum organisers also honoured outstanding participants with the AEYEF Award for their contribution to business co-operation between Asia and Europe. Three awards were given out to:
