EFN Asia provides a platform for political dialogue, public education and academic exchange in order to broaden public policy debate and inform people about the merits of a free economy and civil liberty. Our work revolves around two projects, the Economic Freedom of the World report and our yearly EFN Asia conferences.
We cooperate with the Fraser Institute to promote its Economic Freedom of the World (EFW) index in Asia. The report, which is published annually, is a powerful tool for analysing economic development and putting the strengths and weaknesses of Asian economies in a global context.
Since 1998, our annual EFN Asia conferences have taken place across the region, bringing together political decision makers, the general public and policy advisors. Consisting of workshops and discussions, they explore relevant current issues, assess the methods and indicators of the EFW index from an Asian perspective and disseminate ideas about economic freedom to a broader audience.
