Organised by the Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (ASLI), the 4th World Chinese Economic Forum is a major national and international business event that will provide attendees with insight into the key issues that will shape the future of relations with China as well as encouraging and facilitating more in-depth understanding of the Chinese Dragon and the implications and opportunities for the global and regional economies.

Prime Minister of Australia The Hon Julia Gillard MP said “The World Chinese Economic Forum provides a welcome platform for governments, business and industry to discuss emerging opportunities arising from China’s economic growth and its relations with its neighbours in SE Asia and Australia.”
 
Adding his support to the event, Malaysia’s Prime Minister, The Hon Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib said “The World Chinese Economic Forum gives a useful platform for interchange of views and ideas, as well as to forge business partnerships and linkages.”

“The World Chinese Economic Forum has appropriately been described as an idea whose time has come as China emerges to be the world’s 2nd largest economy and the global influence of the nation grows as an economic powerhouse driving robust growth – particularly in the countries of the Asia Pacific region,” said Tan Sri Yeoh.
 
Tan Sri Yeoh went on to say that the Forum seeks to promote a 21st Century Silk Road or modern day Economic Corridor that links China through SE Asia, Australia and India to the markets of the Middle East and beyond.
