Discussant: Beverley Warmington, Head, Asia Division, DFID  
Chair: Rod Wye, Associate Fellow, Asia Programme, Chatham House



This event, organised in conjunction with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), will look at the challenges facing the emerging Asian economies if they are to sustain their growth momentum. The rapid rise of a number of Asian economies over the past 40 years is widely regarded as one of the most successful development stories in history. However, in its recently launched publication, 'Asia 2050: Realizing the Asian Century', the ADB shows that if this growth is to continue, the region must first deal with long-term development and multi-generational challenges. The speaker will share his insights on some of the key findings of the study.

The presentation for this event will be on the record and the Q&A will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
