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.

The 2nd ASEM Conference on Cultures and Civilizations (CMM2) was held in Paris, France in 2005. With the theme, “Cultural Diversity: Opportunities and Challenges – ASEM’s long-term plan“, Culture Ministers adopted the “Action Plan of Culture Ministers” that envisaged the encouragement of cultural interactions among the peoples of Asia and Europe at all levels.
