As the organization’s second in-person meeting since the beginning of COVID, this year’s conference will have 300 of the most senior members of the Horasis community, including delegates from the US, to discuss growth strategies and tackle the most significant challenges facing economies around the globe.

“As the global economic downturn increases pressure on leaders, it’s never been more important for us to not only bring decisive solutions to the many advancing issues that communities are dealing with, but also to unite the continent to further Asia’s development.”
Over the course of the Horasis Asia Meeting 2022, panels and talks will focus on sustainability, rebooting economic activity, how jobs in the region will look going forward, and how more sustainable development can occur in Asia in a post-COVID world.
