Produced by SingEx and presented by HSBC Singapore, Asean Connect 2018 is an Asean-focused thought leadership forum held on 1st March 2018, at MAX Atria @ Singapore EXPO.

Themed ‘Asean 4.0: The future of business’, the forum shared an insider’s look into experts’ analysis of the region’s economic roadmap – especially with Singapore as the Asean Chair in 2018 – and a curated network of like-minded Asean participants comprising movers-and-shakers, business leaders and innovators that can open up to new business ventures or investments in the region.

How would Asean’s future business landscape look like? How will digitalisation set the stage for Asean’s innovative, growing and technology-savvy millennial population, and its drive to power the fourth industrial revolution in Asean?
