    In the age of globalization and urbanization, metropolises worldwide are experiencing breathtaking growth and fundamental structural change – economically, demographically, and culturally. Cities are facing enormous shared challenges and must find intelligent ways to combine quality of life with economic growth, social cohesion, and environmental sustainability.  As a result, an exchange of experiences between cities and the chance to learn from each other can benefit all European and Asian cities.

    Under the heading of "ASEM Goes Local: Challenges and Solutions," the Governor of Jakarta, Dr. Fauzi Bowo, initiated a dialogue on the municipal level between governors and mayors of cities in the ASEM countries in Europe and Asia and hosted the 1st ASEM Meeting of Governors and Mayors (ASEM-MGM) in Jakarta from 28 to 29 October 2010.

    The 2nd ASEM-MGM in Berlin in 2012 will focus on the core themes agreed on in the joint declaration in Jakarta:

    1. Urbanization, migration, and social inclusion
    2. Sustainability and climate change
    3. Good local governance
