The Dialogue takes place annually around the EU-Asia-Pacific Forum on Financial Regulation organised by the European Commission and the APAC Regional Committee of IOSCO. It is an occasion to discuss the opportunities and challenges in the financial services sector around regulatory cooperation between the Europe and Asia.

The keynote speeches and panel discussions focused on:
