Policy in the U.S. has been an important factor in determining multinational companies’ (“MNCs”) decisions when doing business in Asia. With increasing populist pressures in the U.S., many MNCs and investors are wondering whether this will lead to less friendly U.S.-Asia foreign relations, hence affecting their business and operations in in this region. During the sessions, speakers will provide analysis and insight into how populist pressures in the U.S. and Europe will shape policy risk and commercial opportunities for MNCs and asset managers in this new era. A special focus will be on the tension between globalist and nationalist factions within the Trump Administration and what implications this will have on U.S.-Asia foreign relations.
