A Conference on the World's Most Dynamic Region
All event pictures by André Hengst
And just like that, the first edition of our STATE OF ASIA Conference is history.
Speakers from across Asia, Europe and the U.S. and 120 hand-selected guests joined us at the beautiful Swiss Re Center for Global Dialogue to discuss the key developments in Asia.
Thank you to everyone who joined us!
In case you couldn't attend in person this time: videos of all sessions are available below and on Youtube. And the latest episode of our STATE OF ASIA podcast features C. Raja Mohan’s eloquent assessment of where the region stands from the State of Asia Address on the night before.
We're already looking forward to next year where we'll be opening our doors again to talk about the most dynamic region of the world with you once more.
