Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an informal dialogue platform involving 22 countries in Asia and 31 countries in Europe. At the Summit ASEM 6 in Helsinki, Finland in 2006, the Heads of State stressed the importance of education as ASEM worthwhile investment for Human Resources (HR), which is realized through the ASEM Education Ministerial Meeting (1st ASEM Ministerial Meeting on Education - ASEMME ) in Germany in 2008.

1. Quality Assurance and confession.
2. Engaging Business and Industry in Education.
3. Balanced Mobility.
4. Lifelong Learning including Technical Education and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
To support the implementation of commitments pillar 4th, 2015 ASEM Forum on Lifelong Learning, the biennial meeting of the 4th was held in Nusa Dua Bali on 9-12 March 2015.
