[WEBCAST] Asia Briefing LIVE 2020VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Our annual executive forum taking the pulse of Asia and Australia's engagement with the region - in partnership with Bloomberg.
Asia Briefing LIVE is Asia Society Australia's signature event - an annual executive forum taking the pulse of the major developments in Asia and the state of Australia’s engagement with the region.
Now in its third year, this forum builds on the success of our public newsletter, Briefing MONTHLY and brings together senior business leaders, policymakers and the public for an in-depth discussion of the geopolitical and business landscape in Asia and Australia’s relations with the region.
In 2020, and in response to global events, Asia Briefing LIVE will be presented online. The forum will focus on the theme of resilience, and will ask: how resilient are Australia and Asia in the face of geopolitical, economic, health and climate challenges?
Asia Briefing LIVE sessions are presented in partnership with Bloomberg, the leading global business media company and are moderated by Bloomberg’s award-winning journalists and editors. The project is supported by the Victorian Government.
