Asia is not only home to enormous flows of trade, but also political and security challenges. Power imbalances at the regional level are especially visible and risk undermining global stability. In particular, after the crisis, external actors like the US and the EU will be looking for new roles in the region.
Is there any room for coordination between traditional regional powers after Covid-19? Is the EU ready and equipped with the instruments and the political will to assign the necessary resources and political capital to increase its engagement in Asia? Which role for Asia-Africa relations in fostering the post-pandemic economic relaunch?
The dossier is promoted within the third edition of the Asia & Europe Initiative which gathers together leading experts, Asian and European think thank representatives, as well as Italian companies and agencies to discuss on the relations between Asia and Europe after Covid-19.
