ASEM Education Secretariat

To ensure effective coordination of ASEM Education Process initiatives and activities, ASEM Ministers of Education during ASEMME2 in 2009 agreed to establish a rotating ASEM Education Secretariat (AES) in which countries in Asia and Europe take turns to host the AES on a voluntary basis. Germany was the inaugural host of the AES (2008-2013), followed by Indonesia since 1 October 2013. The current secretariat is hosted by Belgium, by both the French community (Ministry of Wallonia Brussels Federation) and Flemish Community (Ministry of Education and Training).
