The Future of Asia is an international gathering where political, economic and academic leaders from the Asia-Pacific region offer their opinions frankly and freely on regional issues and the role of Asia in the world.

The event, held yearly since 1995, was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is considered one of the most important global conferences in Asia.

The 25th conference opened in Tokyo on May 30, 2019 with the theme of “Seeking a new global order - Overcoming the chaos.”

Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh attended and delivered a speech on the first day of the conference.
