Boao Forum for Asia

The Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2013 was held between April 6-8 in Boao, south China's Hainan Province.

Under the theme Asia Seeking Development for All: Restructuring, Responsibility and Cooperation, this year's forum focused on topics related to "restructuring" as economists from home and abroad were invited to discuss China's past and future economic reforms.

A total of 54 panel discussions were held during the three-day event on topics including the global economic recovery, Asian integration, financial market deregulation, small and medium-sizes enterprises, the relationship between market and government, shale gas, expanding domestic consumption and property sector regulation.

In addition, the annual conference offered a chance for young leaders, CEOs of multinational companies, private sector executives and female leaders to meet face to face.

As a non-government, non-profit international organization, the BFA is the most prestigious and premier forum for leaders in government, business and academia in Asia and other continents to share their vision on the most pressing regional and global issues.

Initiated in 1998 by Fidel V. Ramos, former President of the Philippines, Bob Hawke, former Prime Minister of Australia, and Morihiro Hosokawa, former Prime Minister of Japan, the BFA was inaugurated in February 2001.

Boao is now the BFA's permanent site. It covers an area of 86 square km and has a population of about 27,000 people. Since 2002, the BFA has held its annual conference in Boao every April.
