And You Can Quote Me: “Although the Asian market is relatively stable at the moment and can drive global economic growth, it has to face challenges such as the deceleration of the Chinese mainland economy and capital moving out of emerging markets. In order to seek growth and profits in this environment, changes, innovations and connectivity are needed to drive the economy forward and bring about sustainable economic growth.” (Helen Wong, Chairperson, AFF Steering Committee; Chief Executive, Greater China, The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation)
