Strength; resilience and success
The latest issue of Treasury Today Asia comes in the wake of some large regional events, including the recent and very distressing assassination of former President Abe in Japan. The ripples of this will be felt in the country for some time to come. We explore Japan in this edition’s Regional Focus piece, and the complex and at times challenging relationship that exists between Japan and South Korea when it comes to trade and to collaboration in general.
Our Adam Smith Awards Asia 2022 are open for nominations and we would like to invite all our corporate readers to look at this year’s new and existing categories and see whether you might submit to be part of best practice in the industry. We will be back with a physical evening celebration in Singapore this November and look forward to greeting all this year’s winners as we return to our regional calendar highlight.
We explore the career journeys and mindsets of two fantastic corporate professionals within our Corporate View and dedicated Women in Treasury This Much I Know feature. First up is James Zhixin Zhang, Head of Treasury & Corporate Finance, Asia Pacific & China at Siemens Energy and then Cecelia Li, Head of Global Treasury at BeiGene shares her story.
We explore sustainable treasury elsewhere in a feature which addresses natural capital and our Insight and Analysis feature looks at China’s ever evolving regulatory landscape, taking into account the latest developments. All this alongside our Question Answered feature addressing issues of talent competition, a challenge facing all industries at the moment as the job market becomes heavily in favour of employees across the board.
As we look forward to hosting our APAC community at our upcoming Women in Treasury APAC Forum and Adam Smith Awards Asia 2022 celebration dinner, we are excited to celebrate and share with our corporate community in Asia Pacific and welcome your feedback, thoughts and concerns as we move into a new era for us all, for your companies and for the business world at large.
Until we meet again, we hope you enjoy this latest issue.
