I was delighted to attend Asia House’s inaugural conference, “Asia Trade in the New Global Order”, in Hong Kong today.

In the keynote speech, The Hon Mrs Carrie Lam, Chief Executive, Hong Kong SAR said: “The world economy is shifting east and south at an extraordinary speed” and “Asia is an engine of global economic growth” with Hong Kong as the super-connector.

Other prominent speakers include The Hon Dr. Ceferino S Rodolfo, Undersecretary for Industry Development and Trade Policy, Republic of the Philippines, H.E. Dr. Lim Hong Hin, Deputy Secretary-General, ASEAN, Lord Green of Hurstpierpoint, Chairman of Asia House, and many others.

Key outtakes from the esteemed speakers include:
– ASEAN is open for business.
– Economic gravity is moving from the West to the East.
– ASEAN governments can do more to improve business climate, and attract FDI from the global economy into the region.
– Asian countries are on the rise. Indonesia must assert itself as a maritime fulcrum in the New Global Order.

Thanks Asia House for having me. It was a truly insightful & high-level conference!
