WHY ASIAGLOBAL DIALOGUE?
AsiaGlobal Dialogue (AGD) was first launched in 2012 by the Fung Global Institute to draw together experts who have a deep understanding of Asia. AGD presents a select group of business leaders, international policy makers, and influential members of civil society a platform on which to consider and exchange ideas on pressing issues of our time.
Over the years, AGD has featured international thought leaders as U.S. Federal Reserve Board Member Stanley Fischer; former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volker; HSBC Holdings Group CEO Stuart Gulliver; Suntory Holdings President Takeshi Niinami; The Center for Global Enterprise Chairman Sam Palmisano; GE Vice Chairman John Rice; Schneider Electric CEO Jean-Pascal Tricoire; and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken Chairman Marcus Wallenberg.
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.
