Rising to Global Challenges and Realizing Asia’s Potential

The International Conference on “The Future of Asia” is a forum that each year brings together political leaders and top business executives to discuss the future of Asia-Pacific nations and how development in the region stands to impact the global economy. Since its inauguration in 1995, the conference has come to be recognized as one of the foremost international conferences in Asia.
China’s slowdown, higher U.S. interest rates, plunge in oil prices – these are just some of the factors clouding the global economic outlook. How are Asian leaders dealing with the uncertainty? What are the keys to achieving sustainable growth? The NIKKEI CHANNEL deliver some sessions in Japanese and English audio.
