IRSEA’s President and Founder, H.E. Ambassador (p) Gheorghe Săvuică, met H.E. Abdullah Zawawi bin Tahir in preparation of a joint conference on EU-ASEAN relations. Ambassador bin Tahir was accompanied by diplomats of ASEAN member states with foreign missions in Romania. Diplomats from Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand actively participated at the event.
As a former Head of Mission and Ambassador in several ASEAN countries, Ambassador (p) Săvuică commended the recent developments of the bilateral relations between Romania and Southeast Asian countries and stressed the importance of EU-ASEAN cooperation in the 21st century, as both regional organisations are the embodiment of the peaceful aspirations of their peoples, as well as champions of economic development and socio-political positive evolutions.
IRSEA is looking forward to hosting an international conference on EU-ASEAN cooperation in partnership with ASEAN and the Bucharest University of Economic Studies (ASE).
