Furthermore, we would also like to keep you updated on other upcoming Media projects, such as the 10th ASEF Editors’ Roundtable (ASEFERT10) to be held in 2020 in Cambodia, also fully funded but for Senior Journalists. If you are keen on the above-mentioned events, we would like to add you to our ASEF’s Media Database so that you continue receiving relevant information for Media professionals.

ASEF is an intergovernmental, not-for-profit organisation which brings together the peoples of Asia & Europe to solve common global challenges. At the Communications Department, we aim to link media experts (editors & journalists) with other media industry stakeholders to create awareness of different perspectives to the challenges we face in this fast-changing industry. Every year, we organise one event under the ASEF Media Programme, alongside the ASEM Summit or the ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting.
