Asia is clearly the growth story of today - and tomorrow. As its markets mature and bold infrastructure investments begin to pay off, the continent's new powerhouse economies will continue their exciting upward trajectory.

The Milken Institute is positioned at the hub of this monumental shift with the opening of our new Asia Center, based in Singapore. Private events launching the new center took place October 16 with a guest list of international VIPs. The event included an afternoon of insightful panel discussions with leaders from across the globe followed by an intimate reception and dinner.

At the gateway to Asia, the center will expand our efforts to explore the implications of the continent's growing influence and economic power. Our researchers will analyze the demographic trends, trade relationships and capital flows that will define the future. Through the Asia Center, we will build new relationships between sectors and regions around the globe while identifying opportunities for the strategic deployment of public, private and philanthropic capital.
