Event Details

Feast on canapes and cocktails as we get behind the scenes with The Economist editorial team in South-East Asia. Sit back and relax while we explore the insider's guide to their assignments, figure out which parts of their reports didn't make the page and tap into their thinking on the latest developments in the region. We'll also be introducing our new network director, Sumana Rajarethnam.
