Notes: UC RUSAL President's Forum.
Abstract: Indeed, the next few years will likely see the emergence of unprecedented issues. Mr Cheung will question whether the consequent increase in consumer spending power would contribute to a sustainable global economic recovery and, if yes, could our limited resources support the increase in demand? What role would Asia play? How can industries and corporations manage risks and take advantage of new opportunities? And what actions should governments take in order to improve resource management, both locally and globally?
