Seizing Business and Career Opportunities in the Asian Century

Event Date: Saturday, June 22, 2013


As the world’s fastest growing economic region, Asia has become a key destination for Western business professionals seeking high-quality, well-compensated employment opportunities. Asia’s economies are projected to expand from $20.8 trillion to $30.3 trillion in the years between 2011 and 2016—twice the size of the American economy, according to International Monetary Fund projections. Recognizing this trend, multinational corporations have made Asia their port of call, setting up research hubs, manufacturing facilities and business units to capitalize on growth opportunities.  

“Seizing Business and Career Opportunities in the Asian Century” will explore the major economic and social trends shaping the region today, such as the rise of the middle class and the emergence of world-class academic institutions producing the talent and thought leadership to fuel future growth. Topics of discussion include:
•      Career Prospects in Asia & with Asia
•      Introduction of economic and industry trends in Asia
•      Some important cultural differences of doing business in Asia
•      Importance of network and relationships
