Business summits

In parallel with the political summits taking place between the EU and some of its main partners, BusinessEurope is involved in the organisation of business summits aimed at strengthening bilateral economic relations by promoting further trade and investment.

ASEM, Brazil, China or India are a few examples of partner countries/regions that have summits with the EU including the business dimension.
