The year 2012 marks the 15th anniversary of the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), a unique organisation promoting mutual understanding between the peoples of Asia and Europe.
Asia and Europe have a long history of political and economic cooperation, and it was to strengthen the social and cultural bonds between the two regions that the ASEF was initiated in 1997, with the backing of the ASEAN Secretariat and the European Commission. Playing an instrumental role in deepening connections, sharing ideas and broadening the horizons between 46 countries of Asia and Europe, the Foundation is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a series of activities and events in the foundation’s home city of Singapore.
The programme will consist of a number of events open to the public including:
- An online Short Film Contest
- A Film Programme at the National Museum of Singapore
- A Travelling Exhibition starting at the National Library of Singapore
