The Business of Recovering Better

A Resilient & Sustainable ASEAN by Design

While answers to when, if, and how the post-Covid era will change ASEAN remains uncertain, the challenge staring down at us is how to make the regional economic recovery from the pandemic an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable one.

If ASEAN is to live up to its destiny of becoming the 4th largest economy in the world by 2030, ASEAN business must demonstrate leadership through decisive action on sustainability issues impacting on its future.

 

It is an opportunity to rethink, redesign and reconstruct a fair and equitable economy in the creation of the world we want – not to revert to the old normal but resetting for a sustainable and integrated global system in the post pandemic era.

During the 2 days, we take a deep dive to hear from experts on why making continuous investment in sustainability is important for crisis recovery efforts in ASEAN economies, seen through the lens of Corporates and SMEs.

 

ASEAN BUSINESS IS GLOBALLY IMPORTANT

 

As a trading bloc of geo-strategic importance to the world, learn how ASEAN business leaders and SMEs are addressing the fragility of global supply chains as part of their overall sustainability strategy in the new normal.

KEEPING UP WITH TRENDS IN THE NEW NORMAL

 

The proliferation of innovations, the accelerated digitialisation and the increased commitments by business leaders show the way forward in sustainable economic growth.

INSIGHTS FROM MOVERS AND SHAKERS

 

Hear it live from visionary business leaders and Sustainability advocates from Financial and Market regulators, Corporates and SMEs on their response for business to raise sustainability ambitions.

SUSTAINABILITY IS GOOD BUSINESS

 

Now more so than before, the path to unlocking business opportunities around solutions for sustainable development is becoming clear. Network, explore and unlock business opportunities within the region.
