U.S. Ambassador to Singapore To Speak at Conference on ‘Asia Tomorrow’
Business leaders and Singapore’s ambassador to the United States will discuss the emerging economic power of Asia at a conference being held on Saturday, March 28, at Yale.
Titled “Asia Tomorrow,” the event is primarily aimed at Yale undergraduate and graduate students, but is open to the public free of charge. It is sponsored by the Yale Undergraduate Business Society and the Yale Entrepreneurial Society.
“Today, the dynamics of power are shifting,” write the conference organizers. “The emerging markets of Asia are blooming into economic, social, political and academic powerhouses, and corporations are riding the wave of globalization and international expansion. … It is important to educate the future leaders of business, politics and academics about the wealth of global opportunities created by the emerging economic powers of Asia.”
The event will include talks and panels featuring 18 speakers, including Ambassador Chan Heng Chee of Singapore; John Haley, chief executive officer of Watson Wyatt; and Jack Perkowski ‘70 B.A., author of “Managing the Dragon: How I’m Building a Billion Dollar Business in China.”
There will also be networking and recruiting opportunities for companies with operations or interest in Asia.
The conference begins at 10 a.m. at Linsly-Chittenden Hall, 63 High St. For detailed agenda and registration information, visit www.yesatyale.org/asia.
