2012 Boao Forum to focus on healthy, sustainable development amid economic uncertainty

01-05-2012 22:30 BJT

BEIJING, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- The 2012 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference, one of Asia's biggest annual economic meetings, will be held from April 1 to 3 with a theme of "healthy and sustainable development," BFA Secretary-General Zhou Wenzhong said on Thursday.

Overshadowed by the European and U.S. debt crises, the global economy dealt with a great deal of uncertainty in 2011, said Zhou.

"In such an atmosphere, the coming BFA annual meeting is expected to give Asian economies some inspiration in terms of ensuring stability and seeking development," Zhou said.

Zhou said the gathering will focus on three key issues: exploring the root source of global economy uncertainty, seeking reform and transformation and Asia's sustainable development.

Representatives will meet to discuss 20 topics, including debt crises, employment and growth, the reform of the international monetary system, and the strategic breakthrough of Asian manufacturing.

Roundtables for new leaders, CEOs and entrepreneurs will also be held during the conference, Zhou said.

The BFA, founded in 2001, is an annual forum for leaders in government, business and academics to discuss pressing economic issues.
