On November 9th the World Gold Council held an EVOLVE Investment Summit in Singapore. Our series of EVOLVE conferences explore the trends and issues shaping the future of finance. What happens in Asia is hugely significant for the gold market. India and China are the largest gold consuming markets, and other markets in the region including Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan are major trading centres for gold. In a post for goldhub, Dr Parag Khanna, one of this year’s keynote speakers, writes about the shifting economic centre of gravity and Asia’s role in the global economy.
