The Year Ahead Asia
For Asian CEOs, 2018 is set to further cement the region’s position as the global epicenter of growth and innovation; and the source of the biggest risks to the Global Community. The upside could see Asia’ expanding middle-class power world leading growth into 2019, China’s Belt & Road Initiative bringing huge infrastructure projects online, and new opportunities created for all businesses by the rise of FinTech and e-commerce, among others. On the downside, CEOs will have to contend with grave geopolitical risks emanating from North Korea and the South China Sea, a more inward looking White House ready to criticize Asia’s position in a globalized World economy, and the looming specter of a sizeable market correction occurring before the end of the year.
Join Bloomberg in Jakarta on December 6, as we gather CEOs from across the region for The Year Ahead Asia, and help shape the conversation around the most important trends, issues and challenges facing every Asian focused executive in 2018.
