Āzijā EESK uztur attiecības ar pilsoniskās sabiedrības organizācijām Ķīnā, Japānā, Singapūrā, Dienvidkorejā un Vjetnamā.

Pēc ES un Ķīnas 9. samita 2007. gadā tika izveidots ES un Ķīnas pilsoniskās sabiedrības apaļais galds, kura dalībnieki tiekas vienu reizi gadā.

Koordinācijas komiteja ar Japānu tika izveidota 2009. gada februārī, lai uzraudzītu pilsoniskās sabiedrības dimensiju ES un Japānas attiecībās un lai veicinātu sadarbību starp EESK un uzņēmumiem, darba ņēmēju, vides un patērētāju organizācijām, kā arī citām lielākajām pilsoniskās sabiedrības organizācijām Japānā. Saskaņā ar ES un Japānas ekonomisko partnerattiecību nolīgumu tika izveidota ES un Japānas vietējā konsultantu grupa, kas, pamatojoties uz nodaļu par tirdzniecību un ilgtspējīgu attīstību piešķir pilsoniskajai sabiedrībai uzraudzības un padomdevējas lomu.

ES ir noslēgusi brīvās tirdzniecības nolīgumus ar šādām Āzijas valstīm: Dienvidkoreju (2011), Japānu (2019), Singapūru (2019) un Vjetnamu (2020). Minētajiem nolīgumiem ir raksturīgi, ka tajos ir ietvertas nodaļas par tirdzniecību un ilgtspējīgu attīstību un tie oficiāli pilnvaro ar vietējo konsultantu grupu (VKG) starpniecību EESK un citas pilsoniskās sabiedrības organizācijas – kopā ar partnervalsts pilsoniskās sabiedrības organizācijām – uzraudzīt nolīguma īstenošanu un sniegt konsultācijas attiecīgajām politiskajām iestādēm tādās jomās kā vides, sociālie un darba standarti, un citos jautājumos, kas ir tieši saistīti ar pilsonisko sabiedrību. Katru gadu ES VKG rīko divas līdz trīs sanāksmes, un reizi gadā notiek kopīga sanāksme.

Turklāt EESK sadarbojas ar pilsonisko sabiedrību citās Āzijas valstīs un attiecīgos starptautiskos pasākumos uz ad hoc pamata.

  • The discussion focussed on the preparation (topics, stakeholders, organizational aspects) of the Civil Society Forum with Korea and the Workshop on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), held In February in Brussels (20-21 February 2017).

  • During the meeting, the EU DAG will discuss with a representative of the European Parliament the progress in work on its report on implementation of the EU-Korea FTA. The European Commission will update participants on the state of play and the next steps in the implementation of the EU-Korea joint project related to the ILO Convention No. 111. The EU DAG will discuss moreover preparations for the next EU-Korea Civil Society Forum.

  • 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.

  • During the meeting, the EU DAG will discuss with a representative of the European Parliament the progress in work on its report on implementation of the EU-Korea FTA. The Group may also inquire about the outcomes of the EP's mission to the Republic of Korea, which took place in May 2016. The European Commission will update participants on the state of play and the next steps in the ex-post evaluation of the agreement as well as implementation of the EU-Korea joint project related to the ILO Convention No. 111. The Commission will also inform the Group about the preparations for the meetings with Korea under the trade and sustainable development chapter, which will be held in Brussels by the end of 2016. The EU DAG will discuss moreover preparations for the next EU-Korea Civil Society Forum.

    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.
