The ASEF Editors’ Roundtable programme, first launched in 1997 in Luxembourg, gathers senior editors of major print or broadcast media to exchange perspectives on current affairs which are pertinent to Asia and Europe. The Roundtable is often organised at the side-lines of ASEM Summits. Its agenda focuses on salient issues which may also be discussed under the Summit agenda.

The 7th ASEF Editors’ Roundtable gathered some top 20 editors-in-chief and senior media commentators. The event was held in Milan, Italy alongside the 10th ASEM Summit (ASEM10).

The conclusions and recommendations from the 7th ASEF Editors’ Roundtable is published as a monograph by Chatham House. The free download version of this publication is available on ASEF and Chatham House websites.
