(February 18, 2020) Asean-EU ties: seeking a middle path

Joseph Borrell, the new EU foreign minister, revealed down-to-earth pragmatism in a recent article, writing: "We Europeans must adjust our mental maps to deal with the world as it is, not as we hoped it would be." If this is the fresh path that the EU is following, Europe may become the most respected and powerful grouping of nations in the world. And it could all start right here in this region.

The EU decision last week to partially withdraw from the Everything But Arms (EBA) preferential tariff scheme with Cambodia was inevitable following nearly a year of waiting patiently for Prime Minister Hun Sen to improve his record on basic human rights as well as civil and political liberties. The EU did recognise that some progress had been made on these issues, but not enough in European eyes.
