The EU and the Indo-Pacific What Strategy, with which Partners?


The Indo-Pacific is one of the priorities of the French Presidency of the EU Council which begins in January 2022 for six months. Paris is keen to make the Indo-Pacific a pillar of the EU’s foreign policy. But do other country members share the French vision of the region and what about other western partners, including the US? Last but not least, what do the countries of the Indo-Padific region expect from Europe? This two-day conference will try to respond to these questions. It will also focus on the security issues resulting from the military built-up in the region - where China is expanding its influence.
