AsiaGlobal Dialogue 2018

Redefining multilateralism in a global economy

Launched in 2012, AsiaGlobal Dialogue (AGD) is Asia Global Institute’s flagship forum for constructive dialogue to bring out fresh insights and Asian perspectives on key global issues. 

AsiaGlobal Dialogue 2018 took place on November 14 & 15, 2018 at the historic Loke Yew Hall, The University of Hong Kong. Themed Redefining multilateralism in a new global economy, AGD 2018 brought together global thought leaders from academia, business and policy to look at issues triggered by recent political development, U.S.–China relations, shake-up of the global and regional trade systems, geo-economic and security concerns in Asia Pacific, and the advancement of AI in society.
