This 5-hour 4th Asia Leadership Forum, run in conjunction with the Asian Leadership Conference 2021 - "World After Covid: Rebuilding Trust and Cooperation" (ALC), organized by Chosun Media, brings together world-leading thinkers, decision-makers, and experts to discuss practical cases, lessons, and insights they have drawn from the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. 


The Asian Leadership Conference (ALC) is South Korea's premier international conference that provides a platform for global leaders to convene and offer possible solutions to Asia's pressing issues. 


This Conference will focus on the importance of a leader's ability to navigate change and disruption, as made abundantly clear by the ongoing global pandemic. Since 2005, world-renowned political leaders, international corporate CEOs, and academic leaders have participated in the assembly. 


This year's ALC will feature over 230 global leaders, including former heads of state, heads of corporations, and thought leaders.
