At the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Intercontinental Conference on Cultures and Civilizations in Beijing, China, from December 2 to 3, Mr. Ebermann declared that the European Union would not only “continue supporting the cultural policy of its member states, but also introduce cultural content devoted to political dialog with third countries.” He went on to describe cultural diversity as the key to the process of European integration in the EC treaty.
