The conference will consist of a lead presentation by Dr. Rhee followed by a panel discussion chaired by Prof. Jesús Seade (Lingnan University) that will include four leading academic and industry experts, namely: Dr. Alicia García-Herrero (BBVA's Chief Economist for Emerging Markets), Dr. Guonan Ma (BIS Senior Economist for Asia and the Pacific); Professor Yue Ma (Lingnan University) and Professor Larry Qiu (Hong Kong University). 

The Asian Development Outlook is ADB's annual economic report providing a comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic and development issues of the developing member countries of the Asian Development Bank. The report also focuses on a selected topic each year. 

The special theme for 2011, and the focus of Dr. Rhee's presentation and the Panel's discussion will be South-South Economic Linkages: their ongoing development and the changing economic centre of gravity from North to South. What opportunities does this shift open up in trade and investment for developing countries in Asia?
