of Change

The 2017 “Future of Asia” Conference will have as its main theme: "U.S. and Asia: Leadership in a Time of Change."

With nationalism and anti-globalization forces on the increase around the world, speakers will address the complex set of relations between the US and Asia in business, trade, security and the entertainment industry. Now more than ever leadership will be critical in managing economic reforms, technological innovation, security challenges and shifts in popular taste and culture.

Future of Asia Conferences

Los Angeles has the largest Asian population of any US city. The entertainment, technology, investment and business communities as well as the ports, the universities and tourism operators are all deeply invested in Asia.

The Future of Asia conferences bring together influential voices from both sides of the Pacific to look at the opportunities and challenges in the world’s most rapidly growing continent. The conferences are organized by the Los Angeles World Affairs Council, founded in 1953 as a non-partisan forum for foreign affairs.
