Asia Economic Forum 2022 | Asia Economic Forum

Enterprise Asia is a leading non-governmental organisation in pursuit of creating an Asia that is rich in entrepreneurship as an engine towards sustainable and progressive economic and social development within a world of economic equality. Its two pillars of existence are investment in people and responsible entrepreneurship. Enterprise Asia works with governments, NGOs and other organisations to promote competitiveness and entrepreneurial development, in uplifting the economic status of people across Asia and in ensuring a legacy of hope, innovation and courage for the future generation.
Enterprise Asia is delighted to be hosting its inaugural Penang Economic Summit, a spin-off of the Asia Economic Forum (AEF), on the 20 & 21 October 2022 to shine a light on critical issues surrounding economic growth in Asia, crossborder connections and key investment opportunities.

2022 has proven to be a year of optimism as impressive progress is made in rebuilding economies despite a changed marketplace stagnating growth. People are vaccinated, restrictions are loosening, businesses have a glimpse of brighter skies as the world eases back to normality. That said, when we look ahead and beyond at growth for the region and Penang, we are still struggling with risks, shifting market drivers and deeper nationalism across the globe.

As political conflicts, trade tensions, strained supply chains continue to plague our global and regional economy, what are the opportunities and new growth drivers for businesses in Asia? Being a part of the Northern Corridor Economic Region, how is Penang advancing investments? What are the shifting business patterns affecting industries? Will technology be a key factor driving transformation? How will trade tensions and supply chain chaos play out?

Thought-provoking insights and rigorous discussions will be delivered by influential keynote speakers and interactive panel discussions in PES2022 to bring to the fore trends that underpin practices of globalization, investment insights and what are the driving forces shaping the world tomorrow, mostly, how do we prepare to be in the epicentre of ‘what’s next’ as recovery gather pace in the months to come?
