WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE
BRING TOGETHER
WORLD LEADERS AND
LEADERS OF SCIENCE & ENTREPRENEURSHIP?

Hello Tomorrow Korea (HTK) has embarked on a journey together with the Asian Leadership Conference (ALC) to bring you an event that aims to offer unprecedented value.

The 8th Asian Leadership Conference, hosted by The Chosunilbo – ranked South Korea’s most trusted and largest daily newspaper – is the country’s premier international conference where global leaders coalesce to discuss and provide possible solutions for the pressing issues currently facing the world, with a focus on Asia.

World-renowned political leaders, global corporate CEOs, and scholars have participated in the conference since its inauguration in 2005. The conference’s audience comprises a mix of C-level and senior executives from industrial and financial companies, senior government leaders and officials, scholars, and students.

The 8th ALC will be held under the theme of ‘New Leadership in the Era of Hyper-Uncertainty: Towards Peace and Prosperity’, and it will also be the launch of the Hello Tomorrow Korea Inaugural Conference, with its theme focusing on the ‘Convergence of Technologies’ : IoT, VR, AR, AI, Robotics, Health-Tech, Industry 4.0, and Sustainable Technologies.

The amalgamation of these two prestigious conferences aims to set the stage for one of the most powerful and influential changemaking platforms in the world.

HELLO TOMORROW KOREA 2017
CONVERGENCE OF TECHNOLOGIES

The sector of and concept related to the Internet of Things is constantly developing and morphing over time. As this change occurs, it is becoming evident that the convergence of things, technology, people, data, processes, and life itself forms a large part of this process. As technology evolves and IoT becomes this interconnected with all aspects of life, we are entering into the new era of the ‘Internet of Everything’.

We are approaching a hyper-connected Life and Society where the boundaries and separation between machine and human become unclear. A convergence is occurring that will provide a newer clarity, a modern awareness as the advancement of the past decades merge. This emergence of converging technologies opens the door to even greater challenges related to governing policy and regulations. How do we protect and maintain boundaries, while creating a better and more sustainable world.

ASIAN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE 2017
NEW LEADERSHIP IN THE ERA OF HYPER-UNCERTAINTY: TOWARDS PEACE AND PROSPERITY

The power landscape is shifting. The US-led political order is now going through a multi-polarization process where power is distributed to China, Russia, Europe and et cetera. The fundamentals of Financial Capitalism, which has dominated the 20th Century has been shaken since the financial crisis of 2008. The sharp increase in the growth curve that began during the Industrial Revolution has lost steam as the engine for innovation has hit the wall and started to trend downward. The world, which is suffering from terrorism and territorial disputes, refugees and social bipolarization is overshadowed by isolationism and protectionism. Will the world be able to achieve prosperity and peace again?

In this time of year, we need to establish a new paradigm for the peace and growth of mankind. Coincidentally, many countries in Europe, Asia as well as the US are undergoing a political transition. The infection point will allow us to set a new direction for politics and the economy.

At the 8th Asian Leadership Conference, global leaders will share their experience and wisdom to analyze the issues in a political and economic force around the world and to find the right solutions. Collective intelligence of the conference will estimate the direction of the global power, and they will present creative ideas and insight that turn crises into opportunities.

DAY ONE

ALC Initiative  –  ALC

As the call for political innovation enhances, the year 2017 will see change in leadership all over the world including South Korea. Such emergence of new leaders could lead to significant changes in the political and economic order. We will discuss what kind of new leadership is needed in an age of great upheaval prompted by the anti-globalization movement and other developments.

Leaders & Innovation  –  ALC | HTK

Companies or countries will only survive when they keep up with changes in society. The global financial crisis served as yet another reminder that complacent organizations are bound to collapse due to moral hazard. We will explore how we can innovate national systems and industrial structures in order to achieve sustainable development.

The Better Society  –  ALC

The underrepresented class around the world is suffering from greater pain in the wake of rapidly changing global conditions during the past year. These challenges are set for us to create their sustainable living conditions where no one is left behind. To solve the challenges, we will discuss topics on what governments and companies can do, such as fostering startups to create new industries, investment in emerging markets, restructuring amid the global financial crisis and job creation.

Collaboration for Regional Peace & Security  –  ALC

What will the security landscape look like in Northeast Asia under the Trump administration and how can nuclear disarmament of North Korea be realized? The Heritage Foundation, Brookings Institution and Korea Research Institute for National Strategy sit together in search of the answers. UniKorea Foundation — a civic group founded in 2015 with engaged supporters of 1.68 million supporters in just a year — will introduce their efforts for unification of Korean peninsula. 

Focus on China  –  ALC | HTK

Regardless of skeptics that Chinese economy is stagnating, China is a leading engine of global economic growth; Chinese companies are transforming themselves from ‘Fast Followers’ that focused on manufacturing cheap copied products to ‘Fast Movers’ that are leading the industry. Leading entrepreneurs from China with strong global presence will share their stories on how they achieve success.

DAY TWO

 Global Market Forecast  –  ALC | HTK

How do financial gurus and global economic experts that move the real economy see the future? Academic leaders will participate in heated discussions on BREXIT (UK’s departure from EU), stagnation of Chinese economy, and debt bomb, a threat to global economy. The Wall Street gurus will present an investment market outlook when US interest rates rise.

Humans in the Era of VR & AI  –  HTK

What will our interactions with robots and virtuality be? Are robots connecting or isolating us from our natural environment? World-renowned speakers will share their insights into how far technological innovation has come and where it is headed: from manipulating virtual 3-D objects to augmented humans in the fields of Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, and Digital Security.

Towards a Sustainable Future  –  HTK | ALC

What are the prospects for our future environment? What will it look like? These sessions will focus on our future environment — how we will interact with it, and the associated organizational and regulatory challenges. Innovation and emerging technologies will not only change the way we live as humans, but also change the way we interact with our environment, the way we move, the way we consume, the way we produce, etc.

Future of Health-Tech  –  HTK

How does the future of health sciences enhance our life? Discover how developments in biomedicine, advanced computing, and neuroscience are improving our health, and longevity, as well as day-to-day life. In these sessions, we explore what is effective preventive medicine and treatments of various diseases like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and where we are headed in developing new treatments that will enhance human life on earth, and beyond.

Asia on the Rise  –  ALC

India emerges as next growth engine of the world, and ASEAN including Indonesia and Vietnam celebrates its 50th anniversary of establishment. At the 8th Asian Leadership Conference, there will be a discussion on the present and future of the ASEAN countries and India. Current and former Ministers from each nation will discuss the growth potential of India and ASEAN and measures for political and economic cooperation.
