Dear EIAS friends,

The EIAS team is delighted to present its August 2021 newsletter, in which you can find our latest range of publications and updates on our activities. Highlights include our briefing paper on the EU connectivity strategy, as well as our latest policy briefs on Myanmar’s humanitarian crisis and water scarcity in China. We also invite you to read our op-eds on the latest developments in EU-Asia relations, including the EU’s Indo-Pacific strategy, arbitration reform in the EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement, SDG actions in Northeast Asia and the G7 Summit in Cornwall.

We are also delighted to resume our EIAS activities and look forward to welcoming you at EIAS after your summer break with a number of events and activities on EU-Asia affairs, of which the Briefing Seminar on the elections in Uzbekistan on 2 September will be the first of many more to follow.

We wish you a happy reading and look forward to welcoming you back at EIAS face-to-face in September!

Warm regards,

The EIAS Team
