asia became hub of my professional work from 1983 - first visit Indonesia work with Unilever

 I didnt not know it then but it would be teh forst pover 50 trips to asia from the west mainly paris, london or washington dc


until then :I hadnt fully understood my fathers life time work at teh economiston wanting to see the two thirds of humans who are asian develop; nor that the economists's passion turned to asia when tehpaper's 1843 founder was sent on mission by queen visctoria to calcutta to start a charter bank by and for india's peoples


many updayes from asia are streaming in from adam smoith friends and my year long prep for cop26


here is part of a conversation with a philippine climate fimace banker now in london

Jennifer I looked up the regional female leader who spoke at world bank in 2017 - governor revil  (masbate ) -have you come across her?- basically she seemed to want to create exchanges with young professionals at the world bank particularly agriculture/cattle ;  I don't think she had any particular fintech solutions  - are there any philippines friends of yours in the washington dc region? - under jim yong kim the world bank was fun space to meet asian entrepreneurs; in fact almost his last act was to host the world bank annual meetings in indonesia 2017- i note that g20 comes to indonesia in 2022 ; one of my neighbors is one of the top asian professors at american university- https://www.google.com/search?q=amitav+acharya  ;; when it comes to fintech in the past I have often tried to catch up with friends in singapore; also on linkedin I made admittedly (only basic) contact with the lady who chairs world economic forum events on Artificial Intelligence and seems to connect their industrial revolution 4 hub out of san francisco - I try to keep up with everything out of geneva where I believe the tech experts of the United Nations tend to meet - the ITU does a continual series on #aiforgood and its 4 year world planning circle is currently happening over 8 weeks with vietnam  - also guterred headed 3 years reporting on digital faunace which concluded with a good report in 2020 -please say if you wpould like me to dig that out
