KEYNOTE: Geopolitical risk and its implications for Asia

Steve Wilford, Partner, Asia Pacific of Global Risk Analysis at Control Risks

Geopolitics is driving up anxiety in boardrooms. Companies are expecting continuing risk of escalation and overspill from the Ukraine-Russia conflict and US-China rivalry, increased weaponisation of cyberspace, and intensifying clash of national interests – all of which have significant implications on business in Asia. Your clients will be monitoring for signs of decoupling in critical areas of their supply chains. Greater trade and investment restrictions, export sanctions, data protection laws, and other economic regulations will complicate strategic and tactical business decisions. These will create challenges, and potential opportunities, for businesses and for you as their legal counsel.
