The panel will share highlights from projects such as MusicConnect Asia, the first ever Asia Music Summit that took place online in July 2020 and brought together 150 delegates and 45 speakers representing 24 countries from across Asia and more. The session will also share the strategies that have gone into making these colossal collaborations work and open the discussion to the audiences/ experts in the “room" to encourage exchange of practical ideas/ strategies that can be incorporated to strengthen Pan Asian networks.
