Seventy participants, including museum directors, ethnologists, and archaeologists, from 23 ASEM member countries attended the conference to exchange views on how museums in Asia and Europe had to relate to new conditions created by IT and globalisation.

Eight representatives from museum bodies in Asia and Europe also addressed how museums could face the challenges of the new century.
