14th Asia Europe Economic Forum

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
20-21 September (TBC) Geneviève BARRÉ Political and Economic Department Asia Europe Economic Forum Economy

Seoul, Korea

 The 14th Asia Europe Economic Forum (AEEF) will be held on 20-21 September in conjunction with the 7th ASEM Economic Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM EMM7) hosted by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea (MOTIE) on 21-22 September 2017 in Seoul, Korea.

This year, AEEF will bring together high-level economists, representatives of ministries and corporate to exchange and elaborate on the theme “Prospects for the Asia-Europe Economic Cooperation in a New World Order”, which covers not only the Forum’s traditional interest in global macroeconomic developments and international trade, but addresses two new issues - the 4th industrial revolution/digitalization as well as climate change and energy.


Conclusions of the 14th AEEF will be presented at the ASEM EMM7. These interactions between both events will not only enlarge the scope of the forum, but also allow the AEEF’s work and outcomes to feed into the discussions of the ASEM EMM7. The AEEF contributes to the ASEM Process by providing expert analysis and inputs for innovative and integrated policy recommendations.


This page will be constantly with more information on the 14th AEEF, please check back for more information and details.
