V Aziji EESO sodeluje z organizacijami civilne družbe na Kitajskem, Japonskem in v Južni Koreji. Leta 2007 po devetem srečanju na vrhu med EU in Kitajsko je bila vzpostavljena uradna okrogla miza civilne družbe s Kitajsko, ki se sestane vsaj enkrat na leto. V zadnjih letih je Odbor v skladu s sporazumom o prosti trgovini med EU in Japonsko, ki civilni družbi dodeljuje spremljevalno in svetovalno vlogo, vlagal v razvoj tesnejših odnosov z organizirano civilno družbo na Japonskem.

Sporazum o prosti trgovini med EU in Republiko Korejo, ki je začel veljati leta 2011, je bil prvi v t. i. novi generaciji trgovinskih sporazumov EU. Za te sporazume je značilno, da vključujejo poglavje o trgovini in trajnostnem razvoju, EESO in organizacijam civilne družbe v Koreji pa dajejo formalno vlogo pri spremljanju izvajanja teh sporazumov in svetovanju ustreznim političnim organom na področju okoljskih, socialnih in delovnih standardov ter o drugih vprašanjih, ki so neposredno pomembna za civilno družbo. Notranja svetovalna skupina EU se vsako leto sestane trikrat; skupna seja poteka enkrat na leto.

Poleg tega EESO sodeluje s civilno družbo v drugih azijskih državah in pri ustreznih mednarodnih ad hoc dogodkih, kot je forum državljanov Azije in Evrope, organiziran dvakrat na leto, tj. medregionalna platforma civilne družbe, ki je del azijsko-evropskega srečanja.
