Asian corporate leaders are racing into the year of the horse. Executives are confident 2014 will be the year that the global economy recovers, and that demand stabilizes.Poised to capitalize on the post-crisis opportunities is a new generation of Asian corporate leaders. They have plenty to be positive about. Asia accounts for 30% of the world's gross domestic product, and it is expected to rise

to 50% by 2050. An Asian middle class of 1.7 billion in 2011 is expected to hit 2.3 billion by 2020. They are daring enough to use modern tools such as the Internet to push the boundaries and propel their brands from "recognized at home" to "global power." 

NAR will introduce 50 Asian business leaders to watch in 2014. Starting from this issue, content will be updated through February.
