About

BUILDING AN EXCLUSIVE, INFLUENTIAL COMMUNITY OF LEADERS FOR GROWING THEIR ENTERPRISES, THEIR COUNTRIES, AND THEIR CONTINENTS

The High-Level Dialogue on ASEAN Italy Economic Relations is the event of reference in the ASEAN Region for strengthening economic ties between ASEAN countries and Italy.

The first four editions – Jakarta (2017), Singapore (2018), Hanoi (2019) and the 2020 digital edition – gathered more than 1,600 Chairmen and CEOs of companies, Ministers and Institutional leaders from ASEAN Countries and Italy. The third edition in Hanoi saw the attendance of both Prime Ministers of Italy and Vietnam along with the ASEAN Deputy Secretary-General and senior Ministers from the other ASEAN countries. In 2020, in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the High Level Dialogue turned into a cycle of 4 high-level digital Round Tables programmed from July 2020 to January 2021 which were strongly supported by the Malaysian Government.

In 2021, a first meeting of the High Level Dialogue on ASEAN Italy Economic Relations will be realized in digital format, where the most cutting-edge topics will be addressed:

  • Macroeconomic outlook of ASEAN in the post-pandemic scenario
  • Cooperation between Italy and ASEAN countries in the recovery and relaunch phase
  • Green technologies for a sustainable future
  • Aerospace, Defence and Security for resilience
  • The future of e-Economy in ASEAN

The Digital Round Table will serve as the “launch” of the fifth edition of the High Level Dialogue and will be followed by the physical event in Kuala Lumpur in 2022.
Participation at the High Level Dialogue in Kuala Lumpur is by invitation only and it is exclusively reserved to Chairmen and CEOs of companies and Institution Leaders.
