EU-ASEAN Trade & Investment 2019 Booklet

 

The partnership between the EU and ASEAN is 42 years old. Over these years, cooperation has expanded and deepened to encompass a wide variety of topics, from environment to security over digitalisation.

Over this period, one area has remained at the heart of the partnership between the EU and ASEAN: the close economic and trade ties. Even in times of global financial difficulties, trade and investment flows between the EU and ASEAN have grown substantially. The impressive numbers captured in this booklet testify to this closeness.

The EU has become ASEAN’s second largest trade partner (after China) and ASEAN is the EU’s third largest trade partner outside Europe (after the US and China).
