CKGSB and SRW&Co.’s Flagship ASEAN Global Leadership Program
to Focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) is delighted to announce the renewal of its collaboration with SRW&Co. for the upcoming edition of the ASEAN Global Leadership Program (AGLP), scheduled to take place in Beijing from the 4th – 8th of November, 2024. The program, themed “Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Cutting-edge Insights from China,” is designed and delivered by both organizations, offering an immersive five-day journey into China’s dynamic transformation and innovation landscape, and regional opportunities for businesses.
Tailored for senior executives, the program aims to provide valuable insights into how China’s history, policy, and innovative companies are shaping the regional economy. Moreover, the program explores how businesses in the region can leverage the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) to tackle challenges and seize opportunities presented by this landmark agreement that is pivotal to their regional success.
CKGSB’s Founding Dean and Professor of China Business and Globalization Xiang Bing says, “We are sincerely delighted to partner with SRW&Co. to co-host the 5th ASEAN Global Leadership Program in 2024. This program plays a vital role in offering leaders from ASEAN countries a broader global perspective and a deeper understanding of China, thereby facilitating increased collaboration and integration between China and ASEAN countries.”
The program will bring together distinguished faculty members, industry experts, and leaders to speak on a wide variety of topics spanning from the broader geopolitical landscape and economic development to more focused topics around China’s digital innovations, its unique business models and economic partnerships within ASEAN economies.
Daniel Wong, Chairman and Partner of SRW&Co. says, “Besides trade and investment, China has also contributed to many important regional development initiatives in ASEAN, especially in the infrastructure sector like the BRI initiative. As in our past China editions, AGLP participants can gain valuable knowledge, experiences and insights from the world-class CKGSB faculty and their distinguished alumni network.”
The partnership between CKGSB and SRW&Co. began in 2012 with the launch of the first AGLP Asia edition in Beijing. The last edition of AGLP China took place in 2019 in Shanghai and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants.
AGLP is aimed at senior executives working in both the public and private sectors across industries in the Southeast Asia region who have responsibilities for strategic leadership and for improving their company’s performance. To date, AGLP alumni comprise of over 500 top executives at the C-suite and board levels in the corporate sector, and policy makers and regulators from the public sector.
