KUALA LUMPUR: The Harvard Project for Asia and International Relations will hold the HPAIR business conference from Aug 14-17 here.

The annual conference gathers hundreds of international undergraduates and MBA students and young professionals worldwide together to interact and learn about the most dynamic areas of Asian business from the most prominent industry leaders.

It seeks to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current economic trends in Asia and create a forum for discussion of new developments in the region.

This year’s theme characterises the many challenges and opportunities Asia faces today. Through the structure of plenary sessions and panels, the conference will evaluate the challenges facing Asian economies as they reinvent themselves to generate sustainable growth and discuss the strategies that Asian business leaders are adopting to capture opportunities in the new Asian business landscape.

The workshops will analyse case studies and help participants gain a practical understanding of Asia’s business opportunities.

The event will be officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Celcom (M) Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Mohammed Shazalli Ramly.
