ZICO ASEAN 40 Under 40 is a flagship program of ASEAN Advisory, the consulting arm of ZICO. We pay tribute to 40 trailblazers under the age of 40 in, or from, Southeast Asia who are driving positive change and creating impact in this region.
Each honoree is addressing a trend or challenge in the ASEAN countries through their work. These outstanding individuals comprise entrepreneurs, professionals, innovators, sportsmen, artists, and public sector officials, amongst others. This diverse collective embodies the spirit of ASEAN and is representative of the region’s future potential as a political, economic, and sociocultural bloc.
A closed-door lunch and dialogue was held on 27 July in Singapore to kickstart the ZICO ASEAN 40 Under 40 program for 2018. The attendees participated in panel sessions discussing their personal journeys and outlook on ASEAN.
