Our Goals

Our Work

The current focus areas of the Governance and Economy Department include:



The Governance and Economy Department also coordinates the publication programme “ASEF Outlook Report” developed by ASEF. Published biennially in conjunction with each ASEM Summit, the two-volume publication seeks to provide both quantitative and qualitative analyses on a selected topic with particular focus on Asia-Europe relations and its implications on the ASEM process.

Launched in 2016, the ASEF Outlook Report 2016/2017 – CONNECTIVITY: Facts and Perspectives identifies main components of and assesses the level of connectivity between Asia and Europe.
