The Future of Asia Summit

The future of asia summit

The Future of Asia, an alumni summit hosted by UNSW Sydney, will be held on Saturday 3 March 2018 in Hong Kong. This one-day conference is designed to reinforce UNSW’s commitment to thought leadership and high impact research by delivering expert contributions which inform global discussion and debate.

An exciting program of panel sessions will connect and engage the global UNSW alumni community, local industry and government. UNSW graduate and Shui On Group Chair, Vincent Lo, will initiate a conversation on the impact of China's belt and road initiative. Amongst other issues we will then explore the future of health; population growth; the arts and culture; and a world beyond finance.

The summit will conclude with a group dinner in the evening to bring delegates together after a thought-provoking day – allowing a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with fellow alumni, industry, and friends.

We invite alumni and friends from across our global community to join us in Hong Kong.
