World Economic Forum on East Asia 2011 | World Economic Forum-World Economic Forum on East Asia 2011 Leave a comment
“Robust economic growth and an improved investment climate have underpinned the economic recovery of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), buoyed by an emerging market of nearly 600 million consumers. The planned economic integration by 2015 will see ASEAN emerge as the world’s 10th largest economy. As Chair of ASEAN in 2011, its largest economy and a member of the G20, Indonesia is the ideal location to host the 20th anniversary of the World Economic Forum on East Asia, convening leaders from business, government and civil society to address the region’s key challenges.”

“The World Economic Forum today launched The Future of Government: Lessons Learned from around the World in the run-up to the World Economic Forum on Europe and Central Asia. The report which highlights best governance practices will be presented at a high-level dinner with seven heads of state and government, key ministers and representatives from international institutions, business and academia. Participants will address the need for governments to redesign their structures and processes to capitalize on a new set of actors and tools so as to be efficient and effective in today’s complex, interlinked and fast-changing environment.”
The World Economic Forum’s Community of Global Growth Companies (GGC) was formed in 2007 to engage dynamic high-growth companies with the potential to be tomorrow’s industry leaders and to become a driving force of economic and social change. As of May 2011, 300 companies from over 60 countries had been admitted to the GGC Community.
Members of the Community of Global Growth Companies convene every year at the Chinese-hosted Annual Meeting of the New Champions and at the World Economic Forum’s regional meetings, and collaborate through WELCOM, an exclusive online networking platform for business and government leaders.
Some corporations have exceeded their original shareholder’s expectations and expanded far beyond their country of origin’s borders…local to global.
The World Economic Forum from Switzerland gives recognition to such significant global companies through their membership in the Community GGC.
