The CEO Forum 2016 establishes itself as an informative platform for delegates to attain insight on the latest market concerns from various market pioneers. The forum showcases a panel of CEOs representing different sectors and industries, sharing a discussion on the latest trends, the outlook of SEA markets, and potential opportunities.

Adopting the theme of ‘Globalisation’ for 2016, the contents will largely look into the opportunities that lie beyond our borders, what are the common limitations for local SMEs to enter the international market, and how these limitations can be transcended.

Some Topics We will be Addressing:


  • How Businesses Today Should Adopt in the Globalisation Movement
  • The Requirement and Necessity for SMEs to Compete Globally
  • Harness Information, Unleash Technology to manage the Digital World
  • Innovation and Cross border collaboration in the ASEAN Economic Community
  • Social Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Sustainability
