Coming Together, Moving Ahead: Asian Economies Lead Through Integration and Innovation

17th Asian Corporate Conference
May 16 - 18, 2007, Tokyo, Japan

As Asia comes together on regional trade agreements and business partnerships, it also faces the looming threats of shifting demographics and an environmental crisis. It becomes pressing for Japan and its neighbors to engage each other and learn from examples of success and past mistakes. As the world’s second-largest economy, Japan is once again poised to assert its position as an engine of growth in Asia, and its economic resurgence creates a unique opportunity to redefine leadership roles and reevaluate the globalization game.

Asia Society’s 17th Asian Corporate Conference brought together top business figures and government leaders from around the world to explore Asia’s economic future in the context of Japan’s resurgence and the next steps in globalization. How are Asian companies innovating to compete globally? How will Asia meet its growing demand for energy? What are the areas for collaboration in combating a growing environmental crisis? How will Japan’s role in the global economy evolve vis-à-vis Asia’s emerging powerhouses – China and India?

Since 1989, the Asian Corporate Conference has attracted a combined audience of more than 14,000 participants from more than 38 countries.
