Asia Rising and Our Shared Future


Luncheon Dialogue and In-Depth Discussions with C.H. Tung, Vice Chairman, Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and Kevin Rudd, President, Asia Society Policy Institute
Reception at 12.30pm
Luncheon Dialogue & Discussions at 1pm
Close at 4.30pm


The world has entered a period of historic change with a tectonic shift of relative power from the West to the East. These shifts are profoundly challenging national, regional and global agreements and institutions such as the United Nations Security Council, World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Heightened tensions over long-standing sovereignty and resource claims are further threatening economic interdependence, peace and security. In order to find constructive pathways and arrangements for Asia’s rise and to ensure continued global prosperity and stability, the Asia Society Policy Institute launched the Asia Rising Dialogue in October 2014 for high-level discussion of three key questions:

  • Where are we today and what are we observing?
  • Where do we need to be?
  • How do we get there and what do we need to do?

The Asia Rising Dialogue will be brought to Hong Kong beginning with a conversation between the Honorable C.H. Tung, Vice Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and former Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Honorable Kevin Rudd, President of the Asia Society Policy Institute and Former Prime Minister of Australia. All participants will then tackle key issues relating to Asia’s rise in the spheres of economics, finance, culture and security. Held under the Chatham House Rule, remarks will not be attributed to any individual, and the findings obtained from this series will be reported to world leaders, and will guide the agenda for a global gathering on Asia’s rise, which Asia Society plans to host in 2016.
