17 - 19 April 2009, Boao, Hainan, China
The Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) has distinguished itself as the leading organisation dedicated exclusively to issues facing Asian governments and enterprises. The BFA is committed to promoting regional economic integration and bringing Asian countries closer to their goals for sustainable economic, social and environmental development. It plays an important role in facilitating discussion, insights and exchanges of ideas by bringing together senior statesmen, business leaders, and industry leaders from regions around the world.
The annual conference focused on the very important topic of sustainable long-term growth with the theme of " Asia: Managing beyond crisis". Over the three days of the Boao Forum, participants discussed the keys to effective management of the impact and challenges of the economic crisis on Asia, as well as the increasing role of emerging economies in the new global financial order.
