Public Talk: EU-ASEAN Co-operation In Eco-Tourism

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
15 Oct 09 - 15 Oct 09 Governance & Economy Department Sustainable Development



With a steadily growing economic partnership, EU and ASEAN entered into negotiations for a FTA in 2007, and Eco-tourism has been identified as one of the key areas for deeper cooperation. As one of the ASEAN countries looking to developing sustainable tourism, Thailand has commissioned the production of a first guidebook on the subject, entitled “Travel Green Thailand”. This guidebook gives not only useful travel tips and advice, but also highlights the benefits of stronger EU-ASEAN cooperation in the field of eco-tourism. In this talk, Mr Richard Werly, the main author of “Travel Green Thailand”, shared his insights and perspectives on how EU and ASEAN could deepen cooperation in eco-tourism as one of the sectors contributing to sustainable development of the Southeast Asian region. This free talk was jointly organized by the European Union Centre, the Asia-Europe Foundation, and the Singapore Institute of International Affairs.


- How can ecotourism contribute to sustainable development in Southeast Asia?

- What are the benefits of stronger EU-ASEAN co-operation in the field of ecotourism?


Mr. Richard Werly, main author of "Travel Green Thailand."
