World Economic Forum on East Asia - Jakarta, Indonesia 19-21 April 2015

Marking a return to Indonesia after three years, the 24th World Economic Forum on East Asia will take place just months after the inauguration of the third democratically elected government under President Joko Widodo. It will offer a chance for leaders from various sectors to improve trust in public and private institutions, and promote sustainable development.
