Grand Ballroom
The unfolding global financial crisis has put unprecedented pressure on governments, businesses, NGOs, families, and individual livelihoods. Especially vulnerable are the poor in developing economies. This panel will examine the outlook for the global economy over the next year, the challenges ahead for developed and developing economies, the prospects for recovery, and the immediate and longer-term social and economic implications of the crisis. Business and government leaders will assess the impact of the downturn on global efforts to alleviate poverty and the capacity of companies to meet their social responsibilities. They will also explore key priorities in education, public health, and energy and climate change that have emerged from the sharp slowdown in growth.

Alternative Higher Education
Salon Rooms
To respond to changes in the workplace and rising demand for talent, societies have to expand and create innovative models of higher education. In a learning society, education beyond secondary school is essential. Expanding access to higher education has been a policy priority for many Asian countries, which have also aimed to build elite institutions. This session will examine new ways of organizing higher learning beyond the traditional university. Panelists will discuss alternative models, including distance learning, non-institutional credit recognition projects, qualification systems, and specialist schools. They will also consider the various effective public-private partnerships that have emerged and ways in which these may be replicated or scaled up elsewhere in the region.

Program Participants:
Christopher Graves, President and Regional CEO, Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide
Yoshito Hori, Chairman and CEO, GLOBIS Group
V.N. Rajasekharan Pillai, Vice-Chancellor, Indira Gandhi National Open University
