Asia's rise has led many to believe that its catapult to strategic and economic preponderance is just a matter of time. The U.S. saw it coming, so it rebalanced its pivot to Asia. But what does Asia look like in the eyes of the equally important and affluent Europe? Well, the answer seems to be two-fold. On the one hand, the "old" Europe still puts Asia on the backburner. It is too preoccupied with the formidable task of getting its fiscal house in order and is obsessed with the traditional trans-Atlantic partnership with America. On the other hand, a "new" Europe has come to the sober realization that Europe has to look at Asia as a way to ensure future prosperity.

So, how is Asia changing in the eyes of the Europe? And how can both continents rise above their differences and work towards achieving common prosperity?
