Synopsis

EuroCham Singapore, along with other European Business Organisations (EBOs) in the region, is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar focusing on the recent EU Elections and their potential impact on the Southeast Asia region and European companies operating in the region. 

In this webinar, we will analyse the outcomes of the EU Elections and discuss how these results might influence EU policies that directly affect economic and political dynamics such as trade, investment and regulatory environments in Southeast Asia.

We will also highlight the names that have been communicated for the most senior positions at the European Commission, European Council, and the foreign policy service. Understanding who will be at the helm of these influential EU bodies is crucial for anticipating future policy directions and their implications for international relations and business operations.

We are honoured to have Mr Antoine Ripoll as our keynote speaker. With his extensive experience and insights, Mr Ripoll will provide an in-depth analysis of these developments and participate in a Q&A session to address any questions from the audience.

POST EVENT

On 5 July, EuroCham Singapore, together with other EBO’s in the region, hosted an insightful webinar on the outcomes of the recent EU Elections and their potential impact on Southeast Asia and European companies operating in the region.

Our keynote speaker, Mr Antoine Ripoll (Minister-Counsellor for Parliamentary Affairs with ASEAN from the EU Delegation to ASEAN), provided a comprehensive analysis of the election results, focusing on key areas such as sustainability, competition, and digitalisation. His insights into the new appointments at the European Commission and the seat distribution at the European Parliament were particularly enlightening, shedding light on how these changes may influence future policies.

During the Q&A, moderated by Ms Godelieve van Dooren, sustainability emerged as a crucial topic, with discussions on how evolving EU policies might impact various countries in the region differently. The conversation also delved into the importance of competition, which can influence trade and investment climates across the region.

Digitalisation was another significant focus. We discussed the opportunities for digital and technological cooperation between countries in Southeast Asia and the EU, highlighting the potential for innovation and growth in this area.

We are excited to see how these developments will unfold and the opportunities they will bring for collaboration between countries in the region and the EU. EuroCham Singapore remains committed to closely following these trends and advocating for the interests of our European members active in the region.

Thank you to all participants for your engaging questions and contributions.
