The 21st century is said to ‘belong to Asia’. However, this is far from predetermined. In the coming decades, several Asian economies may struggle to capitalise on their inherent potential. How can the EU leverage its economic influence and foster closer partnerships with Asian countries to ensure mutually beneficial growth, innovation, and trade?

This hybrid Policy Dialogue will focus on the EU-Asia economic future and draw on the findings of Simon Commander and Saul Estrin’s book, The Connections World: The Future of Asian Capitalism, which provides valuable insights into Asia's development and prospects.
Participation is open to EPC invitees and members, the media, and EU officials
