                facilitate the transformation of Asian economies? What can we learn from mature
                markets? Are there going to be any further major developments in the foreseeable
                future?

11:00 - 12:30   From G8 to G20: New Architecture, New Rules, New Players
                (Sofitel Hotel, Oriental Theatre, 1st Floor)
                The rise of emerging economies has put an end to the dominance of G8 in global
                economy and given birth to a new grouping – G20. G20 means far more than a mere
                inclusion of 12 new members. It marks a major departure from the status quo. People
                look forward to seeing a greater role by emerging economies and a new set of rules on
                global governance. In this session, heads of key international organizations, central
                bankers, economists and business leaders will share their thoughts on how the new
                architecture will evolve and its implications for the world economy.

11:00 - 12:30   Rethinking Growth
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A)
                Export-led growth models have proven vulnerable. Environment and resource restraints
                condemn heavy pollution and high energy/resource consumption. Asia must change its
                growth paths, though the transformation will inevitably be a protracted and painstaking
                process. Do governments have the political will and vision to make bold changes? Are
                there any successful examples to follow? How to manage the transition? What policies
                are expected from the government? How should companies adjust their strategies
                accordingly?

12:45 - 14:15   Luncheon Session: Trade Protectionism – A Real Threat to Recovery
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom C&D)
                Reassurance made at the G20 Summit are not enough to dispel concerns about the
                steady rise of trade protectionism; sentiments of economic nationalism has compelled
                governments to take short-sighted trade measures, which have posed a real threat to a
                fragile global recovery. The Doha Round, however, remains ineffective. Does global
                trade liberalization still have a future? What can be done to curb trade protectionism?
                Are regional bilateral and multi-lateral trade agreements a viable alternative reducing
                trade protectionism?

14:30 - 15:30   Merger & Acquisition: Ideal vs. Reality
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A)
                For Asian companies attempting to “go out”, cheap and lucrative deals seem to be
                everywhere. However, the complexity and uncertainty of overseas M&A often results in
                a number of failures. Primarily, companies must fully understand the target enterprise,
                the legal and social circumstances and possible political barriers. Equally important, but
                often ignored, are post-M&A problems such as corporate cultural differences,
                management      team   frictions,   trade   union   conflicts,   community   relations   and
                environmental requirements. What experiences and lessons can be learned from those

                                                                                                         3

14:30 - 15:30   Counter-Cyclical Strategies: Thinking Ahead
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom B)
                To survive volatile economic cycles and grow in adversity, entrepreneurs must think
                ahead with vision, good judgement and nerve. In good times, level-headedness is a
                necessity to curb impulse buying and irresponsible expansion. In bad times, visionary
                leaders are not subdued by fear or pessimism. By retaining and recruiting talents,
                increasing R&D and innovation input and sensible M&A, they sow the seeds for future
                growth and excellence. In this session, CEOs and economists will share their
                experiences and expertise on counter-cyclical strategies.

15:45 - 16:45   Low-Carbon Energy: Can Asia Lead the World?
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A)
                Despite robust growth, Asian economies are mostly seen as latecomers or challengers
                in traditional industries. The financial crisis and global policies on climate change have
                forced Asia into painstaking restructuring and transformation. Beyond the pain,
                however, those with vision do see a rare opportunity for Asia to lead the world – low
                carbon energy. Will it have as revolutionary an impact on the economy as the Internet?
                Is Asia well-placed in this field? What are the technological, market and policy
                restraints? Do governments have any short- and long-term solutions? Will Green
                Recovery be a real choice for Asia to emerge out of the crisis as the front runner?

15:45 - 16:45   Move to Consumption – Asian Style


                                                                                                      4
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom B)
                Low consumption levels have been a problem in Asia, which partly explains why Asian
                economies depend heavily on exports to Europe and the US and why “decoupling” from
                the financial crisis is not possible. Thrift is often cited. However, Asian consumers
                hesitate to spend for other reasons, too. What are the structural factors that subdue
                Asian consumption? What can be done to stimulate domestic demand? Environment
                and resource pressures mean that Asians can not spend the American way. How
                different will the consumption behavior of Asians be?

17:00 - 18:00   Business Environment: Nothing as Usual after the Crisis?
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A)
                It’s no longer “Business As Usual”. As governments and economists reexamine the
                health of their national economies, CEOs are struggling to understand what all this
                mean to their businesses. To what extent is the business environment different from the
                pre-crisis days, from both macro and micro perspectives? Where are the risks? Are
                there opportunities? What are the suggestions for CEOs?

17:00 - 18:00   Deregulation: Unleashing the Power of the Private Sector
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom B)
                Unprecedented stimulus packages have brought governments back to prominence in
                economy. However, this does not diminish the importance of the private sector for
                employment, tax and sustainability of economic growth. Particularly as Asia transforms,
                the private sector has a larger role to play in sustaining investments and stimulating
                domestic consumption. To release the power of the private sector, governments must
                allow them greater access to banking, telecommunications, petro-chemical industries,
                education and healthcare, and ensure that private enterprises and capital play on a level
                field with their state-owned counterparts. Deregulation is the key.

                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A)
                The Asian economy is facing challenges in restructuring and sustaining growth. How
                can the real estate industry redefine its role in such a transformation? Will the stimulus
                packages create another property bubble even before the economy gets back on track?
                Will exorbitant housing prices compromise consumption elsewhere, burden companies
                with increasing costs and reduce the competitiveness of a city? How should the housing
                market reform live up to people’s expectations of affordable housing?

09:00 – 10:30   From Chiang Mai Initiative (CMI) to Asian Monetary Fund (AMF)
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A)
                Regional financial cooperation in Asia was not taken seriously until the 1997 Financial
                Storm hit. CMI and the “ASEAN plus 3” forex reserve pool mark a big step in the right
                direction. Meanwhile, the IMF is reinventing itself to become more effective and
                influential. Against such a backdrop, what’s next for Asia’s regional financial
                cooperation? Is the Asian Monetary Fund too remote to be relevant? Do governments
                have the political will and institutional plans to fully support it? Are there any
                alternatives?

09:00 – 10:30   Emerging Markets: Time to Turn to One another
                (ICC, Level 1, Dong Yu Grand Ballroom B)
                Emerging economies do not necessarily have to “look west” for inspiration, experience
                and powerful markets. They have much to learn from one another, and much to gain
                from trade and investment amongst themselves. This session is designed to compare
                growth paths, competitiveness, weaknesses and the potential of major emerging
                economies, and explore the prospect of Intra-Emerging-Markets cooperation.

                global regulation. The World Financial Organization (WFO) is not even mentioned much,
                let alone play a major role similar to the WTO. High hopes have been placed on the
                Financial Stability Board and the IMF. Can they do the job effectively? What reforms are

                financial system if not properly handled? Are we ready for them in terms of early
                warning, safeguard and response mechanism?
