AECJ has 4 European and 3 Asian members - all professional journalists - aiming to bring together Asian and European journalists, and build sustainable co-operations between them. We wish to provide opportunities for journalists from both continents through projects such as traineeships, mentoring, peer feedback and cultural exchange. AECJ also aims to create a platform to meet, co-operate and create actual media output together.

This blog will be the European home for visibility of editorial content directly relating to the countries we represent amongst one another, as a starting point in sharing information. The Asian and official home of the Asia-Europe committee is INASIA.
What else do we want to do? Network, brainstorm, attend conferences, create opportunities for our countries to flower out, exploit the ones that exist,
So far there are seven of us based across various countries and we are defining our roles in maximising awareness and progress on both sides. We look forward to hearing from you!
