Hans Vriens will speak about political and policy developments impacting companies that operate in Southeast Asia. The discussion will cover the impact on business of the elections next year in Thailand and Indonesia, how political dynamics in Myanmar will shift in the run-up to the 2020 elections, and what to expect from Malaysia’s not-so-new prime minister, among other issues. Regionally, will ASEAN integration and the AEC make progress, and how can companies best leverage these developments for their regional strategies? On the external front, what opportunities and risks will the trade and political confrontation between the U.S. and China open, and how will the EU’s role in Southeast Asia change?

Date and Time: December 4, 8:30 am to 10 am
Venue: Sule Shangri-la Hotel
