"As we move to a post-pandemic world, I expect we will see significant benefits from the digital transformation investments that companies are making, including improved quality of life with new ways of working and richer forms of connection."
"For a ‘Great Reset’ to be viable, businesses must proactively embrace their responsibility to protect and improve our planet and communities. The lessons learned over the past year have given us an opportunity to build resilience for the future. Now we must come together to ensure we’re putting environmental sustainability as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion at the heart of our strategies. "
"The pandemic has provided us an opportunity to pause, take a breath, and view our challenges from a global perspective. Our world comprises many connected ecosystems, and issues are no longer limited to one location. We are truly all in this together. "
"Having seen the strength and resilience of Asia through the pandemic, I am confident the region will build back better through the ‘Great Reset’. As the world comes together to address climate change – Asia will play a critical role – as the region most vulnerable to its impacts but also with the ability to drive the biggest change - the battle against climate change will be won or lost in Asia. "
"As business leaders, it is our responsibility to chart a course for the future in a way that we can all be proud of. We have the unique opportunity to rethink our way of being in the world and invent solutions that reconcile human with ecology and technology. Now is the time. "
