The Asian Economic Forum is an economic focused “think tank” with a research interest in public policy.
Operating regionally from within South East Asia we are a platform for regional Asian communities and global stakeholders to meet and discuss ideas and solutions for the long term sustainable economic development and advancement of Asian economies and the stability of their underlying financial markets.
Our focus initially is to have conversations that encompass the opportunities and challenges for Financial Sector participants, regulators and policy makers in South East Asia and thereafter to expand the scope of subjects & geography within Asia based on the domain experts we can attract.
Our objective is to help contribute to various macro-economic policy discussions that effect economic growth and development on subjects ranging from banking and finance to infrastructure development to a broad range of industry specific challenges and their potential solutions.
Our long-term goal is to highlight economic policies that enable economic growth, stability, transparency and free markets in Asia and also enable global stakeholders to have more engagement opportunities in Asia in addition to their traditional points of interaction.
Our history and journey towards becoming a “think tank” started by an accident of geography and time in 2015 when we were exploring Myanmar as a frontier economy for doing business and thereafter as good global citizens we embarked on capacity development initiatives to help support a nascent democracy in the form of discussions ranging from sovereign rating to banking policy considerations under the platform of the Myanmar Economic Forum and therein the transition to becoming a think tank.
However, in light of the distressing events in Rakhine, the Myanmar Economic Forum find itself in the midst of economic engagement on behalf of global stakeholders under challenging circumstances.
We hope the work done by the Myanmar Economic Forum will lead one day to brighter future for Myanmar with economic inclusion for all of its communities.
Membership at the Asian Economic Forum also helps support activities for the Myanmar Economic Forum.
Now as we continue our journey in South East Asia with an initial emphasis on Vietnam, we look forward to your active participation. Come join the platform … be part of the dialogue.
