Nitin Mantri, President, ICCO, said: “We are delighted to be back in Asia, especially Singapore, which has a vibrant and fast-growing PR and communications industry. Asia is a key market for every corporate brand today and we believe that a lot of the communications industry growth in the future is going to come from this region. We thank the PRCA SEA for hosting the Summit. We look forward to sharing and learning from our peers across the world as to how best we can prepare ourselves to counsel our clients and help them navigate a digitally-disruptive world.”

According to the World Economic Forum, 2020 will see the value of the economies of Asia become bigger than the rest of the world combined for the first time since the 19th Century. Asia’s future is here, now, and we look forward to welcoming communicators from across the world to this most exciting and innovative of regions.”
