Asia's rapid rise has been the world's foremost success story of economic development. The realization of the 'dawn of an Asian Century' is becoming more probable as the region's economic and geopolitical influence continues to grow.

Below you will find some of the latest thinking on the eight overarching forces shaping Asia:

  • Security Dynamics
  • Economic Integration
  • Sustainable Development
  • Technological Disruption
  • Capital Markets Reform
  • Philanthropic Impact
  • Population Aging
  • Middle Class Growth

These forces have the potential to lift millions out of poverty and advance prosperity. However, they require and necessitate change to the status quo. Whether the world will see Asia grow or falter will depend on whether we—government, businesses, and individuals—can come together to advance progressive and actionable solutions.
