On September 17-18, the Milken Institute will bring together 400 CEOs, major investors, heads of sovereign wealth funds, philanthropists and other leaders for its second annual Asia Summit, in Singapore. Like the Institute's annual Global Conference -- but on a much more intimate scale -- these leaders will focus on some of the world's most pressing challenges with a highlight on Asia. Panel topics include hyper-aging, financial technology, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's second year, Japan's resurgence in the Asia-Pacific region, the AIIB and the evolving multilateral lending landscape, and China's growing movie industry.
"The Milken Institute's unique ability to convene leaders on our core issues of access to capital, improving health, and spurring job creation is more in demand than ever," says Institute CEO and President Mike Klowden. "The success of last year's inaugural Asia Summit demonstrated that our Singapore-based Asia Center is making a vital contribution to fostering a dynamic exchange of ideas in Asia."
"The Asia Summit program will address timely issues such as China's economic slowdown and its impact on the rest of the region. We aim to assemble the best minds and real decision makers to tackle regional challenges and forecast upcoming trends," says Laura Deal Lacey, Managing Director of the Milken Institute Asia Center.
Held at Singapore's Four Seasons hotel, the Asia Summit is an invitation-only event, limited to several hundred participants.
