In our series of events on EU-Asia relations, ECIPE is pleased to invite you to a conversation with Søren Kelstrup, Head of Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Denmark and Ambassador for Trade Policy.
During its Presidency of the European Council this spring, Denmark has explicitly given a high priority to the economic relationship between the EU and the Asia-Pacific region, including the prospect of an FTA with Japan.
We welcome you to a discussion with the current Chairman of the EU Trade Policy Committee on the topic of the EU’s trade strategy and policy responses to the rise of the Asia-Pacific region. What results have been delivered recently and what can the EU learn from the latest developments that have taken place during the past six months? What challenges lie ahead for the next incoming Presidency of the EU, and more generally; how is trade leadership exercised during times of economic crisis in the European Union and in the Euro zone?
Please join us for a lunch seminar on current and future developments in the Asian economies and in the trade relationship between Europe and Asia. This seminar is the second event in ECIPE’s special programme during the month of June, dedicated to the economic relations and trade between the EU and Asia.
