Deloitte is proud to be the Intellectual Supporting Partner of the Boao Forum for Asia's ("BFA") Annual Conference for the fourth consecutive year. Themed “Managing Beyond the Crisis”, the BFA annual conference will be held in Hainan Island from April 17-19, 2009. Deloitte's continued partnership with BFA underscores the firm's commitment to collaborating with leaders of government, business and community organizations on shared local and global challenges.
The global financial crisis has impacted Asia along with the rest of the world. The three days of the Boao Forum's annual conference will provide a valuable and timely opportunity for government, business and community leaders in Asia to exchange views and ideas on how Asia can emerge stronger from the crisis, and the role for Asia in the future global financial and economic order.
In its role as the Intellectual Supporting Partner, Deloitte provides input to the BFA program development, drawing on the resources, experience and professional views of the global organization. Attending BFA's press conference today to announce the 2009 Annual Conference, Chris Lu, CEO of Deloitte China, said, "Deloitte is a strong supporter of initiatives that value and promote intellectual exchanges to generate new thinking and strategies for the sustainable growth of the local and regional economy."
The current global financial crisis is redefining the global financial and economic order, as well as the position and role of Asian economies. Deloitte released a report entitled “China and the new global financial order” in December 2008, analyzing the structural changes to the global financial order and China’s emerging and stabilizing role in the financial turmoil.
Addressing the theme of BFA's 2009 annual conference, Mr Lu said, "We are pleased to provide BFA with access to our global organization's pool of talent, knowledge and resources to develop a valuable and constructive discussion forum on key issues such as the role of emerging markets in reforming the global financial order, measures to anticipate potential future downturn, Asia’s transition from a manufacturing-based region and its economic leadership role beyond the current crisis. 2009 is a crucial year for both the Asian and global economies, and the dawn of what we anticipate will be a new era of growth and cooperation."
