The EastWest Institute has convened a series of high-level consultations to address regional economic security issues in Afghanistan post-2014; this work is known as the “Afghanistan Reconnected Process”. Between 2013 and 2015, the Process has involved high-level representatives of governments, parliaments and the private sector from Afghanistan, Central and South Asia, as well as from regional and international organizations, to discuss the opportunities and challenges for cross-border economic cooperation in Afghanistan and the region.

The EastWest Institute is pleased to invite you to a roundtable with practitioners to be held at EWI’s Brussels Center. The event will aim at presenting the Afghanistan Reconnected Process to the Brussels-based audience and at enabling dialogue on participants' perspectives on Afghanistan's future in light of the current situation.

The event will include presentations from selected high-ranking speakers from Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Turkey. The presenters, who have been active participants in EWI’s Afghanistan Reconnected Process, will share views from their direct experience dealing with energy, trade and transit in Greater Central Asia. Presentations will be followed by a discussion moderated by Ambassador Martin Fleischer, Vice-President for Regional Security at the EastWest Institute.

Welcome and registration will be from 16:00 – 16:15. The event will be followed by a networking reception.

The meeting will be conducted under Chatham House Rule.
