Partnership University: American University in Dubai
Conference Venue: The Meydan Hotel and JW Marriott Marquis Dubai
The transformation of Asia has been nothing short of extraordinary: its achievements in recent years would have been hard to imagine in past decades. Asia, with its diverse economic, demographic, and political systems, must now use its newfound voice to play a more prominent role in today’s world.
The HPAIR 2013 Asia Conference seeks to bring together future and current leaders from around the world to engage in a five-day dialogue, addressing the events that have helped to shape the current status of Asia on the world stage. The conference will challenge its participants to think critically about questions surrounding Asia’s future. In the wake of the recent global financial recession, what should Asia do to recover from and prevent similar meltdowns in the future? How should Asia respond to the threat of nuclear proliferation in North Korea and military instability in other parts of the world? How can Asian countries preserve their traditions while the pressures of globalization push them towards modernization? What roles should governments and businesses play in bridging the numerous expanding gaps found both between and within nations?
As we turn the corner on the first decade of the 21st century, the decisions made today will prove critical to the success of Asia tomorrow.
