12th Asia-Europe Foreign Ministers' Meeting (ASEM FMM12) - Working together for a sustainable and secure future

05-11-2015 / 06-11-2015 - European Convention Center Luxembourg

The 12th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, for which the theme is “Working together for a sustainable and secure future”, comes between the ASEM summits held in Milan in October 2014 and the 11th Summit in Ulan-Bator in July 2016. The FMM12 will therefore take stock of the commitments from Milan and pave the way to ASEM’s 20th Anniversary which will be celebrated during the next summit in Mongolia.

The FMM will focus on issues of crucial importance to the Asia-Europe partnership and the world at large, namely climate change, disaster management, non-traditional security, connectivity, regional and international issues as well as the future of ASEM. The first plenary session on November 5th will be on “Climate Change, 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management”, the second plenary session will focus on “Connectivity and the Future of ASEM”. The retreat session on November 6th will deal with International and Regional Issues.

 In addition 3 side-events co-organized by Luxembourg and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) will take place in the side-lines of the ASEM FMM12: the 1st Young Leaders Summit, the 10th ASEF Journalists Colloquium and the Photo Exhibition “On the Go”.
