The Fung Global Institute’s flagship annual event, the Asia-Global Dialogue (AGD) will be held in Hong Kong on
5 and 6 December 2013 (Thursday and Friday) at the Four Seasons Hotel, in Central.
This will be the second AGD since the Institute was founded in 2011. The inaugural event, in May last year, attracted a capacity by-invitation audience of over 400 distinguished participants from over 20 countries addressing the topic “Towards a New Global Economy: Re-defining Asia’s Role”. The gathering, which was widely covered in international media, set AGD on track to becoming the premier independent forum of its kind in the Asia-Pacific. It enables global business leaders, international policy makers, scholars and leaders of civil society to engage in open, constructive discussion on pressing and relevant issues.
AGD 2013 will once more be themed around the Institute’s four core areas of research: the evolution of global supply chains, the development of Asia’s new financial architecture, the evolving growth models of China and India and Asia’s sustainable development. Building on last year’s topic, we aim to deliver an equally robust, timely and forward-thinking programme, with substantive fresh insights and exceptional networking opportunities. In the coming months the AGD website will be updated with information on the AGD 2013 programme and speakers. Meanwhile go to http://www.agdialogue.com for the AGD 2012 highlights.
