Bang Sang-Hoon
President & CEO,
Today we are living in an age of chaos.
The world stands at an unprecedented crossroad. Northeast Asian political landscape is unstable due to
the North Korean nuclear issues as well as the changes in the relations among both Koreas, China and
Japan. At the same time, the global economy is confronted with the threat of a prolonged recession stemming from the sluggish growth of the Chinese economy. Europe is engulfed with a fear of an influx of
Syrian refugees and potential terror attacks by the Islamic State. With the presidential election coming this
fall, the United States remains uncertain as to when the country’s economy will break out of its current
Likewise, South Korea is also faced with a time of crisis with continuing sluggish growth and lack of
decent jobs for the younger generation; these have provoked major social discontent. More than ever, we
need to meet our challenges head-on and think outside the box in order to usher in a new age of prosperity. This calls for a ‘creative destruction’ in not only the corporate sector but also in the government,
education and labor sectors. It is only with such steps that we will be able to find renewed hope and direction for all. In our effort to prepare ourselves for a new future, the 7th Asian Leadership Conference, under
the theme ‘Asia Tomorrow: Innovation 4.0’, has brought together experts from all over the world, who will
present their remarkable insights on innovation at the conference. We cordially invite you to join this year’s
Asian Leadership Conference where we explore a new path for Korea, Asia and the world.
The world is experiencing dramatic changes. Firm beliefs and strong optimism have crumbled while terror
attacks, localized wars and security threats have intensified. Mired in the trap of population aging and
sluggish economic performance, societies and companies are having difficulty finding a new impetus for
growth. In this ‘new normal’ age of chaos and uncertainties, we are in desperate need of true innovation
that propels us through the current crisis.
Under the theme ‘Asia Tomorrow: Innovation 4.0’, which will be a quantum jump for fundamental
changes, this year’s Asian Leadership Conference (ALC) brings together top leaders and intellectuals to
share their knowledge and insight. It will serve as a platform for exploring ways to create a vision for future

P2P & The Future
of Financial Service
Distinguished scholars and thinkers from around the world come together for a heated
on-stage debate. With pride at stake, the debate panels voice their opinions regarding the
most pressing issues of our time. Immediately after the debate, the audience cast real-time
ballots to determine which side was more convincing.
and Innovation
The world is in urgent need of leadership that can usher in an age of complete
transformation. As we look for answers to our challenges such as pension, labor
and education reforms - issues where the solemn reality of today and great uncertainty about the future are interwoven – we will turn to countries and their leaders
who have successfully implemented innovation processes.
The Better Society
With the global village becoming closer, the threat of cyberattacks and infectious
diseases like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) has grown as well. Can
the good faith of humanity make a difference? We will examine women’s leadership, corporate social responsibility and the evolution of sharing that now goes
beyond the simple act of giving out food and water.
Collaboration for
Regional Peace
and Security
The think tanks Brookings Institute, National Strategy Institute and the Heritage
Foundation will shed light on the North Korean nuclear issue and the security in
Northeast Asia while the Tongilnanum Foundation – whose membership has
grown to over 1.5 million since its inception just eight months ago – will share their
vision for the future. In addition, international photographers and journalists will
offer a close look at people in North Korea.
Global Economic
How do major economic players and business experts see the outlook for the
global economy? Academics will engage in a heated debate on the struggling
economy of China, the growth engine for the entire globe, and experts from Wall
Street juggernauts will discuss the outlook for real estate, energy and commodity
Focus on China
Learn about the true colors of a young China – how IDG Capital played a crucial
role in starting Tencent and Baidu, how Huawei’s smart city strategy has unfolded
as it makes inroads into global markets and how, China’s answer to Air
B&B, has come to replicate the success of the original. Whatever you imagine,
you will see more of China.
Machine Learning
The world watched intently as the Go master Lee Sedol and the artificial
intelligence AlphaGo engaged in epic matches. In the field of big data, Internet of
Things, robots, driverless cars, and virtual reality, world-renowned experts will
share their insight into how far technological innovation has come and where it is
Start-up Revolution
Brick-and-mortar companies have given way to Apple, Google and Facebook. In
China, start-ups like Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent have increasingly become a
force to be reckoned with. Where does Korea stand in this changing business
landscape? We will look at A to Z of -accelerating start-ups and learn the success
story of MIT’s start-up initiative.
Health Tech
How is the biotech revolution changing our perception about health, fitness,
disease, and longevity as well as our day-to-day life? The sessions will present
how far we have come in curing difficult diseases like cancer and where we stand
and where we are headed in developing new drugs that would make humanity
free from diseases.
