The ASEM Finance Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM FinMM) is an integral element of the ASEM process. Earlier ASEM Finance Ministers’ Meetings have pursued a dialogue on matters of common interest, in such fields as exchanging views concerning the global economic outlook, the international financial architecture, the more effective implementation of existing supervisory principles and regulations in the financial sector, combating money laundering, and strengthening cooperation in the field of customs.

The 8th ASEM Finance Ministers’ Meeting was held on 16 June 2008 in Jeju Island, Korea. It was preceded by ASEM Finance Deputies’ Meeting on 15 June 2008 at the same venue.
