The European Union and Asia are a world apart, but we have never been closer. This proximity concerns the most crucial aspects of our existence: The health of our citizens, severely affected by COVID-19. The health of our economy, which has taken a hit because of the pandemic. And of course, the health of our planet, on which our very lives depend. We must address these issues together.

The 13th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM13) was held on 25-26 November 2021 via videoconference. It was attended by the Heads of State/Government, high-level representatives and participants of ASEM countries from Asia and Europe, the President of the European Council, the President of the European Commission, and the Secretary-General of ASEAN. The Summit was hosted by the Kingdom of Cambodia and chaired by Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

During the 13th Asia-Europe (ASEM) Summit on 25-26 November which took place in virtual format from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, leaders reaffirmed their shared partnership and engagement in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Over the past two years, civil society groups from both regions have gone through a lot of effort to achieve mutual communication, sympathy and cooperation through the Korea-EU Civil Society Network," said Maria Castillo-Fernandez, Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of Korea. “We have laid the groundwork for the discussion to continue and I will continue to facilitate this forum for dialogue and provide active support to achieve concrete results."
