Event Details

You cannot talk about the business environment in Asia without talking about China. Its relationships both within and outside the region affect the formal and informal "rules of the game" for operating and competing in APAC. This session explores the current state of affairs, and expectations for the near future, between China and the United States, South-East Asia, ANZ, and other key markets.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please send an email to eicn_sea@economist.com.
