Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference Report 2013
A collection of comprehensive and rich discussions about Asia
Shortly after assuming the presidency of the People's Republic of China, President Xi Jinping attended the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2013 which was held between 6-8 April 2013 on Hainan Island, and spoke to a record number of 1,600 important figures from the worlds of government, commerce, industry, and academia, as well as 1,200 representatives from regional and international media, on his vision on Asia's development. This year's theme "Asia Seeking Development for All: Restructuring, Responsibility & Cooperation" has moved beyond the crisis-focused themes of previous years and looks forward to the next stages of development in the region.
Co-produced by the BFA and Deloitte, we are pleased to present to you the annual report of the BFA Annual Conference 2013 which provides a collection of ideas from a broader series of panels, presentations, workshops, and roundtables which captured the details of key topics and the implementation of ideas on Asia. The report is richly informed by the sessions, but goes beyond being a chronicle of the many activities that took place at the Annual Conference this year.
The BFA Annual Conference Report 2013 is divided into six key sections:
- Overview of the Opening Plenary and the keynote speech of President Xi Jinping, the People's Republic of China
- Government and policy
- The region and the globe
- Restructuring for sustainable growth
- Industries and commerce
- Society and culture
Deloitte has been the Intellectual Supporting Partner of the BFA Annual Conference since 2006, collaborating with the BFA and its members to develop a programme which addresses how governments and businesses can work together to balance economic growth and sustainable development in Asia for mutual and long-term success.
