The Forum in Singapore on Leadership for Asia's Future went very well. Over 50 extraordinary emerging young leaders participated in the program. All of them Development Fellows for the Asia Foundation past five years. There was a lot of energy and hope shared among all participants who are at the frontline of change.  Emerging challenges in education, governance, women empowerment... were discussed.
