Major support for Performing Arts programs at Asia Society Texas Center comes from Nancy C. Allen, Ellen Gritz and Milton Rosenau, the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance, and the Anchorage Foundation. Generous funding also provided by AARP, The Clayton Fund, Miller Outdoor Theatre, New England Foundation for the Arts, and through contributions from the Friends of Asia Society, a premier group of individuals and organizations committed to bringing exceptional programming and exhibitions to Asia Society Texas Center. This program is presented in collaboration with Hoppa Project and the Shepherd School of Music at Rice Univeristy.
With international financial conditions becoming less accommodative, and activity in some critical parts of Asia moving to a lower equilibrium, economic growth is likely to settle below the high rates of the past decade. Addressing these challenges will require a recalibration of macroeconomic policies, efforts to reduce vulnerabilities, and deeper structural reforms. Key issues include upgrading investment in infrastructure, public investment and maintaining fiscal space, improving educational outcomes and other steps to spur productivity.
