From technology and globalization to pandemic response and the rise of artificial intelligence, these forces will continue to shape and reshape every aspect of our lives," said Laura Deal Lacey, Executive Director of the Asia Center. "Asia is at the heart of the transformation that defines the global agenda. With our finger on the pulse, our efforts at the Milken Institute in Asia bring together leaders to share valuable insights and highlight critical conversations on issues affecting the region, which often have global implications."
