Hpair 2010 Asia Conference

Official Website:

As Harvard's largest annual student connection in Asia, the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations creates a forum of exchange and facilitates discussion of the most important economic, political, and social issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region. Since 1991, the annual HPAIR conferences have brought together students from the world's foremost universities and leaders in the fields of government, business, culture, and academia. The Asia Conference has emerged as Harvard University's largest annual student event in Asia.

In 2010, for the first time, HPAIR will combine the Academic and Business Conferences into one program: the Asia Conference. This unique conference will integrate the contents and formats of the academic and business conferences to create an unprecedented hybrid structure. Delegates will benefit from gaining a broader exposure to issues spanning multiple arenas, including political, social, economic, cultural, and business.
With the theme of "Sustaining Momentum: Ten Years into the Asian Century," the 2010 Asia Conference seeks to examine the implications of the meteoric development Asia has recently experienced. Asia's rise on the world's stage has dramatically improved the lot of millions across the continent, but such a breakneck pace of development also brings great challenges. As Asia receives greater attention abroad, domestic issues continue to pose significant obstacles. Economic development also brings a widening inequality gap, both between and within nations. As the political, environmental, and cultural consequences of development and globalization pile up, can nations across Asia sustain their momentum ten years into the "Asian Century"?
