Negotiations have been launched between the EU and Brunei during the meeting between EU ministers and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) , and should lead to a bilateral Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA).
The EU has negotiated PCAs with a number of South-East Asian countries, including Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam. PCAs provide a framework for dialogue and closer cooperation in a range of areas, including politics, economics and trade.
The EU and Brunei expect to hold the first round of negotiations for the PCA in the coming months.

They also talked about the strengthening of the EU-ASEAN relations, in the light of the Ministerial Meeting of 26-27 April as well as the upcoming Brunei chairmanship of ASEAN in 2013.
