Preparing for spring
Welcome to the March/April edition of Treasury Today Asia. With the Year of the Ox now in full swing, we are all looking forward to the end of the pandemic and to resuming our community events in person in Asia.
We are preparing for our upcoming Women in Treasury Asia Forum which will take place this June digitally and we look forward to keeping our community in APAC connected and further advancing the dialogue around inclusion in the industry. We mark this month’s International Women’s Day by addressing the heritage and symbolism of this day.
This quarter we will also be sharing our coverage of our Adam Smith Awards Asia 2020 winners in our case studies and dedicated podcast series. Amidst the most challenging time for all of our community, both professionally and personally, the level of achievement was totally remarkable amongst the winners. We are delighted to be able to delve into their stories over the course of the series.
In this issue we address treasury challenges in a diverse regulatory environment. With regulations that change from country to country, from region to region and from time to time, we assess how to balance this hard to navigate space with the day to day demands of your corporate job. We assess how to find some certainty whilst spinning plates.
We also take a look at Hong Kong in a feature assessing what’s next for the city state. Very few parts of the world have experienced as tumultuous a recent history as Hong Kong. As the powerful multicultural gateway city region rapidly changes, we look at what to expect next from Hong Kong and what it means for all those operating with and within it. Elsewhere, we investigate digital currencies, demystifying the fads and frenzies to show the intellectually curious treasurer what you need to know.
We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to bringing you the latest and most thorough insight and to coming together as a community over the course of a year of recovery and opportunity.
