M&G Champions Sustainability as Official Stationery Partner at Boao Forum for Asia

SHANGHAI, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Under the theme of “Asia and the World: Common Challenges, Shared Responsibilities,” the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2024 was held in Hainan, China on March 26th.
