World Economic Forum on East Asia 2013

After a series of bold economic and political reforms, the 22nd World Economic Forum on East Asia will be the first leading international gathering of senior decision-makers from industry, government, academia and civil society to be held in Myanmar. Through this unique multistakeholder platform, the meeting will be an unrivalled opportunity to understand and to shape Myanmar's ongoing reforms and reconciliation process. Additionally, as Myanmar assumes the chairmanship of ASEAN in 2014, it will have a critical role in guiding the bloc's ten member economies toward the planned economic integration in 2015. In this regard, the meeting will provide value not only to participants from the ASEAN region, but also to those who see in the ASEAN countries an important evolving geopolitical and geo-economic pillar of the global economy.
