06 Apr Conference Highlights: 10th AAF (What’s Next for ASEAN?)

Date :06 Apr 2018

Amidst ups and downs, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has grown since its creation in 1967. It has helped safeguard the peace and stability of the region, which has formed the bedrock for ASEAN economies to grow and surpass global expectations. However, as ASEAN celebrates its 50th anniversary, the world it faces today is different, and the grouping’s leadership must confront new and diverse challenges.

 

To help businesses understand these emerging trends and their potential impact on the region, the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA) organised the 10th ASEAN and Asia Forum (AAF), focusing on the theme of “A Future Ready ASEAN: People & Growth in an Uncertain World”. The SIIA’s annual flagship event was held on 5 October 2017 at The Ritz-Carton Millennia Singapore. The Forum was attended by close to 300 delegates, mainly high-level corporate leaders and policy makers keen to expand their regional networks.

 

To encourage closer interaction and in-depth discussions, the SIIA conducted closed-door workshops on the sidelines of the Forum. These workshops were industry led, focusing on specific trends and issues relevant to businesses based in Singapore.  Each of these expert workshops was attended by some 40 distinguished business leaders from leading MNCs who shared their perspectives on the long-term strategies ASEAN and Singapore should consider to bring about its future economy in an era marked by stiff competition and disruption.

 

This report captures the key messages from the Forum and workshops. It is available for download at this link.
