The Luxembourg Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Finance and the ASEAN Brussels Committee will organise a second edition of ASEAN Day on 3 March 2020. The event will bring together stakeholders from governments, finance institutions and the private sector to discuss how to strengthen relations between Luxembourg, the EU and ASEAN. It is is free of charge and open to all companies based in Luxembourg interested in doing business in South East Asia. The working language will be in English.

The EU and ASEAN, key trading partners

The EU is ASEAN’s second largest trading partner and the largest provider of Foreign Direct Investment (€337 billion). Although a more recent phenomenon, ASEAN investment in Europe has also been growing steadily to a total stock of over €141 billion in 2017. The conclusion of bilateral free trade agreements (FTA) and eventually of an EU-ASEAN FTA will create new business opportunities for both regions.

Luxembourg continues to support ASEAN’s community building efforts and is further committed today to deepen its relations with the 10 ASEAN countries. Trade volumes between Luxembourg and ASEAN countries have more than doubled between 2012 and 2018, rising from €2.9 billion to €6.2 billion in goods and services during this period.
