C asean Forum
C asean Forum is a game changing platform for the futurist citizens from various sectors, coming together to make positive impacts and smart moves in the society. Our prospective participants consist of young generation who believe in change, private sectors who are concerned about economic well-being and policymakers who want to shape a better future and keep adept at moving with the times in this changing world. As ASEAN members need to be able to compete on the global scale, C asean has therefore created the C asean Forum or CaF to be a network that will help foster business growth and competitiveness of individuals and the region. At CaF, we aim to provide forward looking insights and start thought leading discussion on current trends and hot issues concerning our three distinct groups of thought leaders, which include:
• Influencers (I) or the CaF I is a platform for top ranking within each countries, such as Prime ministers, deputy prime ministers, ministers, ambassadors, policymakers and regulators. This forum is truly exclusive and confidential, there will be no media coverage, research and data will be prepared in depth. This is to prepare ASEAN for the upcoming trends.
• Executives (E) or the CaF E is a platform for the executives from both, the private sectors and government entities. During the forum, hot issues will be raise for in-depth discussions among expertise to prepare or to create awareness to the high level regulators. CaF Executives Forum will cover the high intellectual topics with the high depth research from our knowledge center team. We aim to make sure that our executive members are on top of the game and have the most up-to-date research for their businesses.
