Van Zorge Heffernan & Associates--In partnership with the Asian Wall Street Journal and backed by some of region's largest corporations such as CIMB of Malaysia, ASEAN DIALOGUES is a premier VIP forum for business executives to explore and gain deep insights into some of the more critical issues shaping Southeast Asia's economies, business and politics that will be held in Bali October 28-29, 2011.

This year's ASEAN DIALOGUES will focus on helping leaders who need to think strategically about how economic and political forces taking place outside their country can impact their businesses.

In a full-day session on "China's Future, And What It Means For Southeast Asia" speakers from China's most prestigious research institutes, investment advisory firms and banks will speak about the challenges now facing China's economy, the prospects for a slowdown in growth and how this could affect other economies in the region.

Participants will also have the opportunity to learn from leading experts about China’s foreign energy policies, Beijing's territorial claims in the South China Sea and how upcoming changes in the Chinese Communist Party leadership might cause critical policy shifts in the future. Speakers will also provide hands-on advice on how local companies can better position themselves in their trade with China and the competition from Chinese corporations as they continue to expand their trade and outward direct investment throughout Southeast Asia.

Sessions on regional and global topics will also be held, with seasoned economists and political analysts participating in large roundtable discussions about the outlook for the global economy in 2012, how the Euro zone crisis could affect Southeast Asia's economies, and a review of political developments in the region that could spell change in economic policies and the business climate.

Delegates will be treated to entertainment, Balinese leisure activities and fine dining that will provide networking opportunities with peers from Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
