Asia is again at the centre of the world economy and world affairs. While the post-war period saw the surge of Japan, the 1980s the rise of the so-called Asian Tigers, we are currently witnessing the emergence, or re-emergence of China, and to a certain extent also of India. This conference will discuss the main “macro” trends in Asia, both economic and political.

Asia is again at the
centre of the world economy and world affairs. While the post-war period saw
the surge of Japan, the
1980s the rise of the so-called Asian Tigers, we are currently witnessing the
emergence, or re-emergence of China,
and to a certain extent also of India.
Economic wealth, demographics, and military capacities all point to an
unprecedented clout of Asia in the coming
decades. But will Asia also assume leadership
for global politics and the world economy? How solid is economic development in
Asia? Will it be politically stable? What is
the role of Europe and United
States in shaping it?

This conference will discuss
the main “macro” trends in Asia, both economic
and political. Participants, all experts on Asia, will discuss the region’s
role in the world economy and its effects on international politics, and delve
deeper into the realities behind the transformations occurring in Asia. At the core of the discussion will also be Europe and its policy to engage with an emerging new
international order, in particular in economic and trade matters.
