The focus of our work is the German-Asian cooperation. In view of the fact that the Asia Pacific region is of considerable importance for the future world order especially its political and economic development we seek a respectful exchange of interests and joint solutions to global problems. We are committed to intensifying cooperation between the countries of the Asia Pacific region with the Federal Republic of Germany and the European Union - at the political, economic, social and cultural levels. Political dialogue with our partners in Asia take a special place in our initiative. At the same time, we want to create an open forum for those partners who are fundamentally interested in a dialog with us.
