“Globalization” is praised, attacked, and regarded as a force of nature. How does it affect Asian American businesses, workers, students and immigrants in the New York area?
Will Asian American small and medium-sized businesses, through “global entrepreneurship,” now be able to share the prosperity offered by a free-trading global market where their countries of origin are booming?
Will the need to create new American jobs stimulate the education system in new skills development and innovative training programs? Or will the challenges of “off-shoring” and “out-sourcing” overshadow the opportunities for economic development?
The conference will bring together leaders from government, business, academia, and local Asian American communities to debate ways to address the multidimensional issues involved in “global entrepreneurship.”
- What are the U.S. government policies on trade, immigration, small business development, etc., that affect economic development for Asia and the U.S.?
- How can Asian Americans take advantage of those policies, and access capital?
- How can new professionals position themselves with changing technology and socio-cultural orientation?
- How does the American public view economic development in Asia and the U.S., and how in turn do Asian governments regard the new American public opinion?
- How can the U.S. education and training systems handle the challenges posed by the new global economy?
