Past Events 2016

"The idea that the solutions lie in monetary policy is a real distraction from the true task of governments – to form a consensus on the priorities for the future, and to move on in tackling the structural issues to get there."

Tharman Shanmugaratnam
Deputy Prime Minister &
Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies
Republic of Singapore

"For Central Asian states, it is vitally important to find ways to combine trade and economic strategies of the leading powers. The synergy... will enable the region to offer an efficient and balanced model of global economic development to the world."

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev
Chairman of the Senate of the Parliament
Republic of Kazakhstan

“One of the major challenges that the world economy is facing today is shrinking US dollar liquidity all around the world. The most natural solution for this retreating dollar liquidity would be an incoming rush of renminbi liquidity."

Thomas Trikasih Lembong
Minister of Trade
Republic of Indonesia

“I would like to push a particular scheme, what I call ASEAN Access – Internet access... I go anywhere in ASEAN, I want to be able to use my SIM and I want to subscribe to any SIM from anywhere, very much like the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (AFTA)."

Dr Narongchai Akrasanee
Chairman, MFC Asset Managment Plc., Former Minister of Energy, Former Minister of Commerce, Thailand

“We believe, in the future, it is not ‘free’ trade that we are looking for, but ‘fair’ trade that we are seeking. Free trade [should] mean fair trade from global powers. We have to talk about global prosperity."

Muhammad Lutfi
Former Minister of Trade
Republic of Indonesia

"First, we need to take a differentiated approach to different technologies and their applications… Second, we need to adopt a risk-based approach to Fintech… Third and last, I think we need to actively promote the Fintech ecosystem..."

Ravi Menon
Managing Director
Monetary Authority of Singapore

“The East Asia Summit already brings together the ASEAN ten, and the key partners of this region... I would like to propose that they organise themselves to a Peace and Security Council of the East Asia Summit..."

Dr Raden Mohammad Marty Muliana Natalegawa
Former Minister for Foreign Affairs
Republic of Indonesia

“Chinese outbound investment is greater than inward investment... Tourism is also growing very fast. China last year has over 100 million people going to different countries; they spent US$160 billion, larger than Chinese outbound investment in the world."
