The Asia-Europe Culture Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM CMM) is a platform of culture co-operation between Asia and Europe. It is a response to ASEM leaders who emphasised that the already existing constructive bi-regional discourse in ASEM should serve to promote unity in diversity.

Originally entitled, ASEM Conference on Cultures and Civilization, the inaugural 1st ASEM Culture Ministers’ Meeting took place in Beijing, China in 2003. Culture Ministers from ASEM partner countries discussed issues of cultural diversity in Asia and Europe.
