2 September 2021
ASEAN Forum 2020 is brought to you by the ASEAN New Zealand Business Council in partnership with SEA CAPE
The theme this year is: Resilience, Reinvention, Rejuvenation.

ASEAN 2020 is a Forum exploring how New Zealand businesses can work to accelerate and build on our engagement with ASEAN, an economic community of 660 million people.

This 100% Virtual Forum (held via Whova and Zoom platforms) highlights the theme of: Resilience, Reinvention, Rejuvenation; and takes a snapshot of our relationship with ASEAN now, as well as looking forward at the possibilities of future potential and development as we bounce out of this extraordinary situation.

Wednesday 2 September 2020

The plenary keynotes will set an overview of the ASEAN – NZ political and economic relationship, and how that importantly impacts on the business we do.

The breakout sessions delve deeper into the Forum themes of:

  • Resilience (looking at supply chains and business continuity)
  • Reinvention (looking at Innovative Sustainability)
  • Rejuvenation (positively using a crisis to affect change, and managing consumer behaviours).

Throughout the Forum we’ll be focused on providing interaction with our digital audience and e-networking options. As always, our aim is to create strong awareness of the possibilities for NZ business in ASEAN and ASEAN business in NZ.
