At 52 years old, Asean is officially middle aged. Far from nearing retirement, the next few years will require the region to fully utilize years of experience to avoid a mid-life crisis. With trade wars upending global supply chains, over 65% of the population going to the polls, and China continuing its regional assertiveness, the next year could be one of Asean’s most disruptive.
To navigate the challenges, Asean has some options: It can increase global connectivity, improve environmental sustainability, harmonize gender equality initiatives and utilize technology to leap up global value chains.
The 5th Bloomberg Asean Business Summit will gather global business and regional policy leaders to identify how to grab these opportunities. Developed as a part of Thailand’s Asean chairmanship in 2019, the summit will be a key platform for accelerating regional growth.
