The goal of this event will be to identify the key recent events and
most interesting emerging trends across the region. We will do this by
mixing coverage of the key countries with analysis of developments in
key sectors. We involve around 10 speakers, each speaking for five
minutes (tightly chaired). They will each be asked to introduce the two
most important developments in their area over the last 12 months,
followed by identification of the two most significant emerging trends.
There will then be 30-45 minutes of Q&A and general discussion, allowing
the audience to react to the trends the speakers have identified.
