While the European Union is set to present its new strategy for the Indo-Pacific, APA and ECFR have teamed up to provide a timely input to the debate. In its latest position paper the Asia-Pacific Committee of German Business acknowledges that to secure Europe’s prosperity, it is increasingly important to more effectively represent European interests in the high development dynamics in the Indo-Pacific. A common external economic policy approach of the EU and its member states for the Indo-Pacific region will require a lot of work in putting the issue at the top of the agenda and providing it with the necessary political backing. To underscore some of the remaining challenges in moving a European agenda forward, ECFR will also present the results of its recent score card survey in 27 member states on perceptions of and perspectives on the Indo-Pacific in the EU.
