"The Asia–Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an exclusively Asian–European forum to enhance relations and various forms of cooperation between the then 15 members of the European Union (EU) and its Commission, the then 7 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the individual countries of China, Japan, and South Korea. It was officially established on 1 March 1996 at the first summit in Bangkok, Thailand. A series of enlargements saw additional EU members join as well as Asian countries.
The main components of the ASEM process rest on the following 3 pillars:

Political Pillar
Economical Pillar
Social, Cultural & Educational Pillar

In general, the process is considered by the parties involved to be a way of deepening the relations between Asia and Europe at all levels, which is deemed necessary to achieve a more balanced political and economic world order. The process is enhanced by the biennial meetings of Heads of State and Government, alternately in Europe and Asia, and biennial meetings of Foreign Ministers as well as political, economic, and socio-cultural meetings and events at various levels."
