What’s next for Asia: Will a newly prosperous supercontinent overtake a waning West?

​​​​​​​​​​Why now? Asia already accounts for 60 percent of the world’s population and 40 percent of its GDP, and its economic hegemony is certain as growth continues to skyrocket. Yet, some question whether Asia’s political models will sustain long-term growth and innovation. Urgent questions? While China has been the growth story in Asia for the past 30 years, what other Asian countries will emerge as key drivers of economic success? What can policymakers and CEOs do to capitalize on this trend – and compete? How should investors approach Asia – today and tomorrow? Key takeaways? How to leverage the Asian economic miracle over the next 25 years. ​
