The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) offer the EU the possibility to work with Asian countries in larger frameworks than the traditional bilateral approach with individual countries. We work with these bodies on issues related to our portfolio, such as entrepreneurship, space and tourism.
We also provide support to businesses via a dedicated IPR SME helpdesk, the Enterprise Europe Network (present in Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam) and the European Cluster Collaboration Platform.
