Asia Trade in the New Global Order: An Asia House conference in Singapore


Asia House is assembling leading figures in global trade and investment for a major conference in Singapore.


Asia Trade in the New Global Order will focus on the drivers of change in the global economy, from high-level policy shifts to the ongoing digital revolution. Taking place in Singapore on 22 November 2018, the dialogue will cover some of the most pressing themes in the global business environment.

As the ASEAN Chair for 2018 and a major global trade hub, Singapore is at the forefront of change as the global trading landscape shifts. It is also consistently ranked among the best cities globally for innovation in technology – a major factor driving change in the global trade order.

The rise of economic nationalism, threats to multilateral trade agreements, and the declining influence of global economic institutions are all key to understanding the shift in global trade, and the new trade order now emerging. But other factors, including the disrupting influence of technology, are transforming the trade landscape. All of these issues will be discussed and debated at this important, forward-looking conference, held at the iconic Mandarin Oriental Singapore.

As with previous Asia House conferences in Hong Kong and Dubai, the dialogue will attract government ministers and C-suite business leaders offering predictive analysis on the emerging trends in the international trade and investment landscape.



Panel session 1 | The Shifting Trade Landscape in Asia and Beyond

Panel session 2 | Creating a Digital Ecosystem

Panel session 3 | The Business and Politics of the Belt and Road
