ASEAN offers much potential in playing centre stage in the future global economy, considering the multitude of shifts in the current economic and political backdrop, including Brexit and the commencement of the Trump administration. Contrary to these anti-globalisation sentiments, Singapore’s openness to trade, talent, and investments, and its exhaustive drive to maintain regional and global connectivity presents unparalleled opportunity on the enterprise level for Singaporean businesses, as well as an economic gateway for neighbouring countries.  

Proudly presented by RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and supported by RHT Academy and ASEAN Plus Group, the ASEAN Summit 2017 will discuss how enterprises, both local and foreign can seize regional opportunities, and also address the various dynamics and capabilities that can be honed to capitalise on the ASEAN platform, for business growth, and the potential to propel one’s business into the future regional and global arena.

Here’s a sneak peek of the topics that we will be discussing in this 1 day conference:

  • ASEAN’s Opportunity in the New World Economic Order
  • Lunch Panel: Leadership Development for an ASEAN Diversified Workforce  
  • Capital Markets Panel: Funding your Expansion in ASEAN
  • Tech Panel: ASEAN Connectivity, Cross Border Strategies & the Digital Journey
