Asia is an emerging economic force, but the potential of its vast human capital is yet to be realised fully. Asia’s leadership needs to explore ways to optimise available opportunities for economic empowerment. That is what forums, such as the ABLF Series, strive to achieve.

But I think the real testament to their success will come when we no longer slot women in a separate category in awards or power lists, when women compete with men on the same footing, under the same conditions.
