25th International Conference on The Future of Asia

May 30-31, 2019

The Future of Asia is an international gathering where political, economic and academic leaders from the Asia-Pacific region offer their opinions frankly and freely on regional issues and the role of Asia in the world. Held by Nikkei every year since 1995, it is considered one of the most important global conferences in Asia.

Seeking a new global order -- Overcoming the chaos The world is beset by uncertainties, including the U.S.-China trade war, the struggle for high-tech military supremacy, and the rise of protectionism. In 2017, the U.S. withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and later announced that it would withdraw from the Paris Agreement, an international framework to tackle global warming. On the other hand, a movement to promote free trade is rising. A TPP without the U.S. has come into force, with 11 countries participating, including Japan, Canada, Mexico and New Zealand. Another agreement, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, is also targeted for conclusion by the end of this year by 16 countries, including the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, along with Japan, China, South Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand.
Amid then continuing chaotic state of the U.S.-led global order, how should Asian countries and companies react? We expect to hear some intense discussions when eminent government leaders, business executives and academics gather at our exclusive forum.
