Location: Hong Kong Date: March 25, 2022 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm HKT


Today's world is increasingly uncertain and volatile, with business navigating risks across multiple geographies and on a global scale. Join us for this deep dive into the global risk landscape, the regional and country risk assessments and opportunities for business to respond and thrive in a complex and ever changing environment.

Joining us to share their views will be one of the region's most experienced experts in emerging markets, Ben Simpendorfer, Partner at Oliver Wyman, as well as leading Australian expert on climate change risk and an author of the WEF Global Risks Report, Dr. Graeme Riddell. More speakers will be announced.

The Global Risks Report 2022, published by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with Marsh McLennan, examines how global divergence across multiple domains in the post-COVID-19 recovery threatens to widen disparities and aggravate societal fractures.

Drawing upon insights from over 950 experts and decision-makers worldwide, the 17th edition of the report unpacks some of the critical global tensions that may worsen the pandemic’s cascading impacts and complicate the coordination needed to tackle common challenges that include strengthening climate action, enhancing digital safety, restoring livelihoods and societal cohesion, and managing competition in space. It concludes with reflections on enhancing national and organizational resilience, informed by lessons from year two of the pandemic.

AustCham welcomes Members and Guests to join us online for this fascinating discussion.
