The Asia Impact Conference Call Series is a collaboration between the Milken Institute and South China Morning Post that focuses on critical issues shaping the future of the Asia Pacific region. As the world continues to grapple with the global pandemic, Asia is well-positioned to guide the rest of the world on how to resume social and economic activities in new and safe ways. The global conversations on Asia tap into a wealth of knowledge from Milken Institute’s senior industry leaders and leverage on the editorial expertise of SCMP to offer meaningful insights on creating a safer and resilient space for communities and businesses.
