Region Americas

Global geopolitical events in the past five years have hastened the evolution of Asia from a traditional bilateral alliance structure into a new multilateral and multipolar architecture. Major trends ranging from changing demographics to the continued rise of technology and the digital transformation of industries have resulted in a new paradigm. Growing global pressure on de-carbonization and the push for “net-zero” emissions present unique challenges and opportunities for the diverse economies in various stages of growth and development. As the region seeks to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, new threats include the emergence of new variants, slower than expected vaccine rollouts, and waning vaccine effectiveness. The rethinking of supply chains is also key in Asia, but will have significant global implications as well. Likewise, the trajectory of strategic competition across various fronts will pose increasing complexity for long-term investors.
