The 9th ASEM Summit will take place in November in Vientiane.

Representatives from renowned Asian and European think tanks such as Chatham House, the ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO), the Institute of World Economics and Politics, Institut Français de Relations Internationals (IFRI) and United Nations University – Institute for Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), will be presenting papers on the EU debt crisis and Asia-Europe Relations via the ASEM process.
