12/02/2014 - Aviation: a new era for EU-ASEAN relations
The EU-ASEAN Aviation Summit, jointly organised by the European Commission and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN1), will take place in Singapore on 11-12 February 2014. The Summit's objective is to enhance political, technical and industrial co-operation between ASEAN and the EU in the aviation sector.
Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for transport, said: "Asia is a fast growing aviation market that the EU must engage actively with. With a combined population of more than 1.1 billion, ASEAN and the EU have a huge potential to strengthen cooperation in the aviation sector and to generate substantial benefits for people on both sides. So, there's much to gain from closer cooperation. I am confident that the Summit will mark the beginning of a new era in EU-ASEAN aviation relations.”
Working together with the Philippines
Rebuilding the lives of internally displaced people by the recurring conflicts in Mindanao is achieved via a series of activities: food and farm equipment distribution, provision of potable water, functional literacy programmes and peace-building.
