The AsiaGlobal Dialogue was inaugurated in 2012 as the Fung Global Institute's premier flagship conference for constructive dialogue to bring out fresh insights and Asian perspectives on global issues. AGD continues to provide an opportunity to showcase the work of the Institute, its research, and its themes, and for thought leaders to come together to explore issues in an informed and objective manner. AGD is privileged to feature distinguished speakers from academic, business, policy, and civil society who come from across the world.
AGDs have featured many global thought leaders, such as AGI Advisory Board Chairman and Nobel Laureate in Economics Michael Spence, former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volker, Vice-Chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference Tung Chee-hwa, former Vice Minister of the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council He Ya-fei, HSBC Holdings Group Chairman Mark Tucker, Alibaba Group Co-Founder & Vice-Chairman Joseph Tsai, Schneider Electric Chairman & CEO Jean-Pascal Tricoire, The Center for Global Enterprise Chairman Sam Palmisano, Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken Chairman Marcus Wallenberg, Suntory Holdings Chief Executive Officer Takeshi Niinami, and Ayala Corporation Chairman & CEO Jaime Augusto Zóbel de Ayala.
Some of these influential voices serve on the Advisory Board of the Asia Global Institute.
We attempt to bring Asian perspectives to bear on global issues, ever mindful that there is no single perspective in a region as diverse as Asia. Equally, Asia benefits greatly from having access to global perspectives, such as those represented by distinguished overseas speakers and participants at this dialogue.
