2019 Asia Political Risk Assessment

The Asian political risk environment is more complex than ever. A wide divergence between China and the United States, trade frictions and other regional tensions mean that 2019 may be a difficult year.

In his presentation Steve Vickers will outline the practical risks to businesses operating in Asia and will address, country by country, the likely outcomes during 2019 in both greater China and the ASEAN countries. This is a useful aid to all businesses who operate across the region.
