Dear All

 

Greetings from China Daily Asia Leadership Roundtable.

 

On behalf of China Daily Asia Pacific, we would like to offer you a complimentary delegate pass for the Asia Society Hong Kong Center – China Daily Special Forum on “Unleashing Asian Dragons: Infrastructure Investments for the Asia Century”, scheduled at 09:00-11:00 at Hong Kong Jockey Club, Asia Society Hong Kong Center, 9 Justice Drive, Admiralty, Hong Kong, on 22 September 2014. In case you are unable to attend, please kindly nominate a senior executive on your behalf.  For additional delegates, please feel free to register at http://asiasociety.org/hong-kong/events/unleashing-asian-dragons-infrastructure-investments-asia-century and select China Daily Subscribers to enjoy the special registration fee at HK$200.  

 

 

Much has been said that the 21st century will be an “Asia Century”, and that economic growth will come naturally. The reality is that Asia, and ASEAN countries in particular, need major investments in its strategic infrastructure projects, such as transports, energy, telecommunications, environment, education and natural resources. Reshaping Asia’s connectivity, these projects will literally redefine the “New Silk Road”. In order to meet with the huge demand for capital investment in Asia’s infrastructure projects, President Xi Jinping initiated the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank during a meeting in last October in Bali. At the BRICS leaders meeting in July, President Xi proposed the creation of the “BRICS Bank” to provide the funding for infrastructure projects in the BRICS and developing countries. In the meantime, the forthcoming ASEAN Economic Community by the end of 2015 will remove trade barriers among its 600 million population region. How will all these strategic initiatives stimulate Asia’s economic growth? Where do China and ASEAN stand on these strategic challenges and opportunities? What are the major infrastructure projects that we should bank on for the sake of our future generations?

 

The panel is open to local and international media. Please note that the floor language will be English only and no simultaneous interpretation will be provided.
