Event description

Description

The last decade has brought big changes in the trade patterns, demographics and technologies of the Asia-Pacific. Trade has been the biggest economic driver, and we have taken continued strong growth for granted.

Now all that is being threatened by forces of anti-globalisation.

Dr Alan Bollard is Executive Director of the APEC Secretariat in Singapore, and he will speak from his experience of how economies, including New Zealand, are dealing with this challenge.

Dr Bollard’s talk will be followed by a question & answer session.

Please join us from 5.15pm for 5.45pm start. Networking will follow the talk from 6.45pm.

Dress code: smart business
