CNBC pioneered the Asia Business Leaders Awards (ABLA) in 2001 to salute remarkable business leaders for their continuing commitment to excellence, developing best practices and innovative strategies. CNBC is proud to continue the tradition established by the Awards that define and celebrate vision, the spirit of achievement and excellence in business leadership in Asia. The ABLA distinguishes and honors leaders who have contributed and shaped the Asian economy, and are visionaries behind today’s outstanding businesses.
Winners of the Awards exemplify the best in leadership. They epitomize the core values of a successful leader – strength, innovation, ingenuity, knowledge and foresight – values that are imperative to carving out powerful businesses in the global economy.
The Asia Business Leaders Awards takes place over two days – featuring a strategic forum and an awards ceremony and gala dinner. The Asia Business Leaders Awards will be presented in a half-hour show broadcast globally – in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States.
