Synopsis


The political risk environment in Asia is complex and rapidly changing. Recent leadership announcements in China, trade frictions with the United States, wider regional tensions;  these coupled with forthcoming elections in some South East Asian Countries mean that, despite an apparently healthy economic outlook, things can change drastically with little prior warning.  

 

In his presentation, Steve Vickers, Chief Executive Officer of Steve Vickers & Associates Limited (“SVA”) will outline the risks of particular concern to foreign business and to business leaders in Asia. He will also cover key risks in China, including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, plus Singapore and other ASEAN countries.
