To celebrate 40 years of EU-ASEAN partnership, the EU and ASEAN organised three flagship events in February 2018 in Brussels to reflect on what the partnership has achieved so far and to look ahead and discuss the prospects for closer cooperation in the years to come.

The EU-ASEAN Young Leaders Forum was held on 26 February, a public debate was held on 27 February and the EU-ASEAN Strategic Thinkers’ Forum was held on 28 February 2018.
