Risks and uncertainties arising from events such as the Trade War and Brexit continue to grip the world with a mix of foreboding and hope. These were among the topics discussed at the ZICO Law M&A Roundtable in Singapore, held in conjunction with the Singapore Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) Conference in April 2019.
Co-chaired by ZICO Law and Allen & Overy, the Roundtable brought together leading practitioners from within the ZICO Law and ZICO network as well as from firms such as Yulchon LLC, and King & Wood Mallesons.
There was global representation at the event, from jurisdictions in ASEAN, to Canada, Germany, Taiwan, New Zealand, and Russia. Practitioners shared their views on local elections, as well as how macro and geopolitical issues of the season, such as China’s Belt & Road Initiative (BRI), Brexit and the US-China trade war have affected each country.
Participants also gave insights on the regulatory developments, developments in M&A and capital markets, as well as challenges and opportunities in their respective jurisdictions.
Here are some of the key takeaways.
