In the Zone 2009

The inaugural In the Zone Conference, Crisis, Opportunity and the New World Order, took place in November 2009.  It brought together leading business, academic and media figures together with our trading partners and nearest regional neighbours.

Over two days, more than 50 eminent speakers discussed how to sustain economic growth in the Asian region, global security and geopolitics, strengthen regional financial markets, encourage foreign investment, and mitigate challenges ranging from the threat of pandemic and natural disasters to poverty in the region.
