En Asia, el CESE mantiene relaciones con organizaciones de la sociedad civil en China, Japón, Singapur, Corea del Sur y Vietnam.

Existe una Mesa Redonda de la Sociedad Civil UE-China, que fue creada en 2007 tras la novena Cumbre UE-China y se reúne una vez a año.

En febrero de 2009 se creó un Comité de Seguimiento con Japón para supervisar la dimensión de la sociedad civil de las relaciones UE-Japón y promover la cooperación entre el CESE y las organizaciones empresariales, de trabajadores, asociaciones medioambientales y de consumidores, entre otras organizaciones importantes de la sociedad civil japonesa. Se creó un Grupo Consultivo Interno UE-Japón en el marco del Acuerdo de Asociación Económica UE-Japón, que asigna un papel de seguimiento y asesoramiento a la sociedad civil en su capítulo sobre comercio y desarrollo sostenible.

La UE ha celebrado acuerdos de libre comercio con los países asiáticos siguientes: Corea del Sur (2011), Japón (2019), Singapur (2019) y Vietnam (2020). Estos acuerdos se caracterizan por la inclusión de un capítulo sobre comercio y desarrollo sostenible, que otorga al CESE entre otras organizaciones de la sociedad civil –junto a las organizaciones de la sociedad civil en los países socios–, una función formal de control de su puesta en práctica y de asesoramiento a las autoridades políticas pertinentes en materia de normas medioambientales, sociales y laborales, así como sobre otras cuestiones de relevancia directa para la sociedad civil, mediante grupos consultivos internos (GCI). Los GCI de la UE se reúnen dos o tres veces al año y celebran anualmente una reunión conjunta.

Además, el CESE colabora con la sociedad civil en otros países asiáticos y participa en actos internacionales importantes, en función de las posibilidades.

The EESC Employers' Group is organising a seminar on "Strengthening European Growth and Competitiveness: Proactive Trade Agenda – NOW!" taking place on 26 October in Helsinki and jointly organized with the Confederation of Finnish Industries and the International Chamber of Commerce, ICC Finland.

Trade and Investment are hugely important for the EU: 1 in 7 EU jobs depend on exports. The EU cannot risk falling behind in the global race to build a wide and ambitious network of free trade agreements. The signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (involving 12 countries and 40% of world GDP) is a timely reminder of this. This seminar, which will be attended by many of our Members together with Finnish employers and entrepreneurs, politicians and academics aims to examine how to best contribute positively to the debate as trade agreements (TTIP - TISA - CETA - EU-JAPAN) increasingly become a top political issue.

The External Relations Section (REX) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is responsible for dialogue between European civil society organisations and their homologues from the countries with which the European Union has formal relations (e.g. under the form of a Free Trade Agreement). Through this dialogue, made possible by a series of bilateral bodies, and through specialized opinions and information reports, the Committee is able to concretely contribute to EU foreign policy.
