The HPAIR Academic Conference is an annual international conference that brings together top students from elite universities across the world to engage in high-level discourse on economic, political, humanistic, cultural, and social issues affecting Asia and the world.
The HPAIR Business Conference is an annual event in which hundreds of international undergraduate and MBA students and young professionals worldwide come together to interact and learn about the most dynamic areas of Asian business from the most prominent industry leaders. Our conference seeks to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current economic trends in Asia and create a forum for discussion of new developments in the region.
The conference approaches its goal holistically and features rigorous academic workshops and lectures led by renowned professors, scholars, government officials, and private sector practitioners from all over the world. Additionally, the conference features opportunities for student paper presentations, interactive activities, field trips, and social & networking events (including the famous annual "International Night" cultural extravaganza as well as the elaborate gala dinner closing ceremony).
Notable past speakers at HPAIR conferences include: Kim Dae-jung (Former President, Republic of South Korea), S. R. Nathan (President, Singapore), Kim Young-Sam (President, Republic of South Korea), Ban Ki-moon (Secretary General of the UN), Fred Hu (Managing Director, Goldman Sachs Asia), Victor Fung (Chairman, Li & Fung Group), Tu Wei-Ming (Professor of Confucian Philosophy, Harvard University), Richard Cooper (Professor of Economics, Harvard University), and Jeffrey Sachs (Professor of Economics, Columbia University).
