Webinar – ASEAN Business and Investment Summit 2020: “Digital ASEAN: Sustainable and Inclusive”
2020-11-13 @ 08:00 - 21:00
The ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (ASEAN-BIS) is Southeast Asia’s premier annual forum that brings together Presidents and Prime Ministers with business and thought leaders at the ASEAN Summit. It is a unique platform where the ASEAN heads, together with those of its partners, engage the private sector community to discuss the future of the region
The distress and shock the coronavirus has caused to the people and economies of ASEAN has been deeply felt. The pandemic has shattered the global economy, paralyzed production and pushed business to the brink, with many into bankruptcy. It has caused us to stop, rethink business models and social contracts and reconsider the future of work. The business sector with its dynamism, creativity, innovation and passion will be a key driver in identifying measures and steps to bounce back and ensure resilience in all our economies.
This year’s theme ‘Digital ASEAN: Sustainable and Inclusive’ will discuss the importance of the fourth industrial revolution in stimulating growth, trade and investment against the backdrop of the shock of the coronavirus and the many challenges facing the region. The Summit’s program will cover four sub-themes: ASEAN’s Economic Outlook; and the Future of ESG Investing in Asia; Technology and the Future of Work in ASEAN; Sustainable AGRI Development and Inclusive Growth
H.E Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia will give introductory remarks at the Panel discussion on the future of ESG investing in ASEAN.reception.
