Asian Overview – The Lay of the Land

Top economist gives an overview on the medium to long term view for Asia. Key markets opening up and their political risk factors. A focus on the effect of China’s economy on the region. Pan Asian and Asian outbound investment and the latest outlook on commodity prices.

Plenary

Keynote Panel: Asian ECA leaders

Hear from ECA heads and regulating authorities from Japan, Korea, India and China, on what they are doing to help their exporters and investors to grow in Asian markets. Get the low-down on how foreign manufactures and financiers can work with them on much needed projects. The panel gives insight on how they are providing cover in key markets across China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, and the risks they will take in smaller markets such as the Philippines, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Plenary

CLEVIS Report Findings

Presentation based on 4 key findings:
1.) Exporters report a decrease in bank risk appetite.
2.) Borrowers let the exporters do the work and don’t have much of an idea on product execution themselves
3.) Report on performance of banks
4.) Report on performance of ECAs

Crucial Projects: Power and Energy

With complexities existing in converting projects, and land rights an issue, how can we can get more crucial power projects over the line? Asia needs power to develop and coal is cheap and in abundance, with COP21 in clutching distance, who is still doing coal projects, and where will new coal technology power stations appear? What asset class will they be in? Are O&G companies realising that low prices might be the new norm, and will they start new projects? Where are the opportunities in Australia, SE Asia and Asia?
