Deloitte Southeast Asia present its upcoming webinar on "Southeast Asia's Turning Point" on Wednesday, 17th November. Deloitte’s recently released Southeast Asia’s Turning Point report has shown that when it comes to climate change – this region has much to lose or gain.

Specifically, climate action will significantly boost Southeast Asia’s economy, with the potential to add US$12.5 trillion by 2070. However, if we do nothing, Southeast Asia risks losing US$28 trillion. 

We invite you to join us and other business leaders for a discussion on how climate action can drive our economic future.
