The first edition of the EU-ASEAN Blue Book provides an overview on development cooperation between ASEAN and the EU and its Member States. The EU funding for ASEAN regional development cooperation programmes for 2014-2020 amounts to €196 million – almost tripling previous support. This first dedicated development report highlights a number of success stories that have come as a result of the joint efforts of the EU and ASEAN. A copy of the EU-ASEAN Blue Book was presented to the Secretary-General of ASEAN, H.E. Le Luong Minh by H.E. Francisco Fontan, Ambassador of the EU at launch ceremony at the ASEAN Secretariat.
