We live in strange times, where the only certainty is uncertainty.Notwithstanding the high degree of uncertainty, there are a number of relevant global trends that can be distilled from all the noise and that will surely affect Asia. A wave of protectionism seems unavoidable but it may expand beyond trade and labour to capital markets, with huge ramifications for Asia. Join our expert speaker, as she helps us to sort out the rhetoric from reality of what is actually happening around the Region.

About our Speaker: Alicia Garcia Herrero is Chief Economist for Asia Pacific at NATIXIS. She also serves as Senior Fellow at European think-tank BRUEGEL and research fellow at Real Instituto El Cano.
