Opening Keynote: Integration – The New Black (or is it?) 

Key Note

Integration, The New Black (or is it?)

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” ~ Aristotle (384 – 322 BC)

Globalisation and economic integration has transcended traditional geographical borders and is creating new growth opportunities within an increasingly integrated marketplace.

Integration opens up new opportunities within its member economies and also exposes its members to threats that they have never faced before.

In the backdrop of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, what is the future for integration vis-a-vis other similar examples of integration amongst countries and economies.

What are the opportunities and challenges and most importantly, is the whole, truly greater than the sum of its parts?
