Business leaders in Asia will be some of the first in the world to map out a path to revitalisation in the post-COVID era.

With many countries in the region beginning to stabilise, CEOs must look to the future and seek out new opportunities while dealing with the realities of a heavily damaged global economy.

As part of a strong regional network, Presidents and Vice-Presidents of the French Chambers in Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, and South Korea will share their insights in this unique cross-border webinar.

In their capacity as CEOs representing diverse sectors from construction and hospitality to finance and retail, they will outline the significant impacts on their industry and region while – most importantly – outlining their vision for what comes next.

The discussion will be followed by an interactive Q&A.
