NB! Webinar link will be sent out Friday Feb 5th morning to everyone who has signed up.

In the current global economic setting, what has the next financial year in store for us?

Come join us to hear from our speakers Dr. Taimur Baig, Managing Director and Chief Economist at DBS Bank, and Ms. Janet Pau, Hong Kong Director at The Economist Corporate Network.

We walk you through the estimates of the momentum in place for ASEAN growth, trade, and inflation; we will also take stock of the currency, credit, commodity, and interest rates markets, most of which are already at risk of being over-valued, but with no let-up in investor enthusiasm. We will also examine the impact of the recent spate of trade and investment deals (from RCEP and CAI) and the new era of China-US relationship – unraveling business opportunities for European and worldwide companies.

The webinar will be moderated by EuroCham Singapore Vice-President Dr. Philippe Hoof, Managing Director & Head of Financial Institution Asia at ING Bank.
