2018 was a rollercoaster ride. Stocks in emerging markets collapsed, US/China tensions worsened and central banks continued to tighten monetary policy. Will 2019 bring relief? Or was 2018 the tip of the iceberg?

The trade war between the US and China has overthrown macroeconomic fundamentals calling for urgent revisits to market strategies not only for China but also the ASEAN markets. As the US-China trade war goes on – how should businesses navigate to minimise risk and capitalise on opportunities?

Executive Dialogue is our closed-door meetings, open to Dragon Partners, Chamber Representatives and members of Network Groups. The meeting is initiated with a presentation from a selected high profile speaker, and followed by a round table discussion. This time we have invited David Hallgren, Trade Commissioner & Country Manager China, and Joakim Abeleen, Head of Business Sweden Beijing, to give us an update on the current situation.

The discussions will include topics such as US/China trade tensions, US monetary policy and currency outlook, how companies can capitalize on the trade war to grow in China. What are the strategic risks to consider, how should companies respond to the tensions and what implications does the trade war have on strategies for the ASEAN markets?
