Regional Strategic Forecast

There has rarely been a more challenging time for global business – the war in Ukraine, the pandemic, inflation, supply chain disruptions, soaring commodity prices, and more. Join us to explore it all at the Regional Strategic Forecast.

Asia’s economies have diverged from other regions in terms of its brighter economic outlook and its specific fragilities related to heightened geopolitical risks and sustained supply chain risks. At the same time, the region is converging on trade while its monetary policies share similar external vulnerabilities. Asia’s ‘Catch 22’ of divergence and convergence will continue to represent great promise and perils to multinational companies in Asia as they seek new breakthroughs and clear solutions.

Please join us for the Regional Strategic Forecast which will feature:
• Implications for business from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine;
• Our latest analysis of the global and Asian economies;
• Monetary policy risks and inflation concerns;
• US and global foreign and trade policies and implications for Asian markets;
• New frontiers for Asia’s tech sector;
• The outlook and driving factors for the local economic and political environment;
• A panel of business leaders sharing insights into the Forecast’s implications for companies in the region.
