August 1, 2023 (SINGAPORE) - The annual Milken Institute Asia Summit, taking place from September 13 – 15, will convene regional and global leaders to discuss a wide range of issues and challenges shaping the Asia Pacific region including enabling greater access to resources and opportunities, capital, and technology by leveraging shared values and goals.

Under the theme “Bridging Complexity and Opportunity”, the Summit will convene business leaders, senior government officials, policymakers, academic experts, and tech futurists from more than 20 countries to transform ideas into actionable solutions, connecting opportunities in an increasingly complex world.

Centered at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, the Asia Summit will continue its format as a fully in-person event with online livestream broadcast for all public panels. Onsite participants can anticipate an interactive and immersive experience, engaging with experts and leaders through a series of networking receptions, private dinners, and exclusive discussion roundtables. 

“Into its tenth edition this year, the Milken Institute Asia Summit once again demonstrates its convening power in bringing together prominent industry leaders and policy makers to discuss critical issues, share insights, and formulate forward pathways in a fast changing and interconnected global economy,” said Robin Hu, Milken Institute's Asia Chair. “I am honored to be a part of the Milken Institute and the opportunity to drive meaningful engagements within the Asia Pacific region and between Asia and the United States.”       

This year marks the 10th Asia Summit, a remarkable milestone and a testament to the Institute’s influence and wide-reaching network in Asia. To commemorate the occasion and reaffirm the important role of the Asia Summit, Singapore Exchange (SGX Group) CEO Loh Boon Chye will host a securities market opening ceremony for senior leadership from the Institute on September 12 to kick off the Summit.

“Being the founding member of Milken Institute Asia Center, I witnessed and supported the extraordinary growth and transformation of the region over the last 10 years. As the fastest-growing region in the past decade, Asia continues to prove itself as the global center of economic power,” said Laura Deal Lacey, Executive Director of Global Markets at the Milken Institute. “I champion the Milken Institute’s neutral platform in bringing together the brightest minds of our time together to solve challenges shaping the global agenda. I hope we all continue to build bridges and connect opportunities for our stakeholders in an increasingly divided world for years to come.”
