    Goals / Remit

    AECA (the American European Community Association) has as its key mission to encourage and deepen transatlantic cooperation and understanding. AECA achieves this through its important international forum for high-level dialogue and debate in which key current economic, political and social issues are examined and discussed by senior members of the international business, political, government, diplomatic, civic and academic communities.

    AECA’s programme of high-level round-tables provides opportunities for leaders to meet with their peers and to share their ideas, experience and vision, towards constructive and tangible outcomes. The scope of interest of the association also extends to the global context, including the BRIC countries.

    The association was founded in the UK in 1981 by Sir David Nicholson, Member of the European Parliament, together with Roy Jenkins, President of the European Commission, and Leo Tindemans, Member of the European Parliament. AECA-Belgium was established in 1985 by Baron Jacques Groothaert and Lucien Le Lièvre. The association is non-partisan, and is politically independent.

    Other activities

    AECA is an international, non-partisan forum for senior members of the business, policy-making, diplomatic and academic communities to meet together for high-level, off-the-record discussions on key political, economic and business issues.

    The association has a long history of friendly and cooperative relations with the European Commission. We were honoured that President Barroso was the Guest Speaker at the AECA Reception on 26th April 2012. Commissioners and Director- Generals find AECA an effective and useful platform for informed dialogue with business leaders and policy-makers, and the discussions at the meetings often provide a valuable sounding-board for the exchange of ideas on key, sometimes emergent, issues within a neutral and supportive environment.

    For information about our international association a copy of the recent and upcoming AECA programme is enclosed, and further information is available at www.aeca.org
