Warm Greetings

Dear Friends,

The Center for Asia Leadership Initiatives, under the leadership of Samuel Kim and John Lim, has created a new and innovative approach to mutual understanding and exchange between East and West. The Asia Leadership Trek, which I can tell you from personal experience, is truly life changing.  The program brings a first-hand look at Asia through the lens of the next generation of leaders.   Participants get to interact with political and business leaders in each of the countries visited, from prime ministers and presidents to CEOs.   It is really quite amazing to have a chance to learn from, interact with, and share ideas with both the current leaders in Asia as well as its promising future visionaries – which may include some of our Trek members too!

Besides the Trek, there are a number of other initiatives that build on the same philosophy of mutual sharing – sharing through learning and service. These are embodied in our fellowship and special programs – programs that address some of the adaptive challenges that countries in Asia are facing.

The phenomenal success of this program over the past few years has been fostered by support from a number of partners including: the Harvard Kennedy School Ash Center, the Harvard Asia Center, the Public Leadership Institute, and the Acumen Case Center.

Thank you all for your continued support of the Center for Asia Leadership Initiatives.
