Summary/Abstract: The ASEM Summit of 53 leaders of states and organisations from Europe and Asia in Milan this week will be one of the largest inter-regional forums in the world. However, to live up to the expectations, ASEM must prove it is more than just a talking shop and deliver tangible results to reinvigorate European–Asian cooperation. For Poland, this offers an opportunity to hold bilateral talks with Asian partners and present itself as a valuable player in the ASEM process. Due to its geographic location, Poland has a particular interest in the success of this year’s main summit theme of connectivity and expanding transport infrastructure to Asia through Ukraine.
