influencing world developments.The biennial Foreign Ministers Meetings held alternately in Europe and Asia are intended to be a forum for informal dialogue and offer European and Asian foreign ministers the chance to meet and discuss all issues of global concern. In addition to questions on the current international agenda, there is a strong focus on economic, cultural and social issues.By intensifying its cooperation also on "new issues" such as energy and climate change, jobs and employment, education and research, ASEM has given impressive proof of its potential. This cooperation, which takes place on a
host of different levels from Heads of State and Government to civil society, is now a practice-oriented process geared to the challenges of the future.Hamburg will be a first for ASEM's six new members India, Pakistan, Mongolia, Bulgaria, Romania, all represented by their foreign ministers, and the Secretary-General of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). An important aim of the Hamburg conference is to encourage the new ASEM
partners to participate actively in the ASEM process.This year for the first time Dr Javier Solana, the EU's High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, will also be a guest at the ASEM Foreign Ministers Meeting. His presence underlines the organization's growing security-policy dimension.The 45 members participating in ASEM's cooperation activities are: Japan, China, India, Mongolia, Pakistan, South Korea, the ten ASEAN countries Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei Darussalam, Viet Nam, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia, the Secretary-General of ASEAN as well as the 27 member states of the European Union and the European Commission. The four ASEM Coordinators are the German EU Presidency, the European Commission, China and Brunei Darussalam.The conference is part and parcel of the dynamic Asia policy of the German EU Presidency.
