IAF recognize major challenges facing businesses and governments in the Asian region with special focus on those operating in the ASEAN countries comprising Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand Philippine, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam and Laos. Some of those challenges relate to up-skilling of human capital, digital and technological innovation, balance of trade, food security, infrastructure development, climate change, sustainable forest management, urbanization and quality of life.
