EU Strategy for Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific

Country

The new Strategy, launched in 2021, recommits the EU politically to the region with the aim of contributing to its stability, security, prosperity and sustainable development, based on the promotion of democracy, rule of law, human rights and international law. Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region is crucial to implementing the global agenda, including achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Europe and Asia must also work together now to engender a green and sustainable post-COVID-19 socio-economic recovery for the well-being of our own peoples.
