MUMBAI: CNBC has launched its second regional, multi-platform sponsorship deal with Hitachi for the network's Managing Asia: Asia Builders series. Content will largely be drawn from a special event in Jakarta on 11 June and broadcast in two-parts on 26 June and 3 July across CNBC's Asia Pacific TV and all digital platforms.

CNBC award-winning anchor Christine Tan will host the Jakarta discussions, titled Innovative Cities: Rising to the Challenge, at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski. She will talk to a high-powered panel of influential developers, who are behind some of the biggest urban development projects in Southeast Asia, exploring solutions to today's urban challenges such as overcrowding, congestion and pollution. On the panel will be Datuk Ismail Ibrahim of the Iskandar Regional Development Authority, Liew Mun Leong of Surbana & Jurong International and SD Darmono of PT Jababeka.

Tan also sits down with Indonesian billionaire-property tycoon Dr (HC) Ir Ciputra, known for the large-scale townships built by his eponymous company, along with his son Candra Ciputra, in a rare interview to examine how innovation has played a key role in building the Ciputra empire.

A poll to assess public opinion on the biggest challenges facing Asian cities is already active on the Asia Builders website at http://cnbcasia.com/events/asiabuilders.

CNBC Asia Pacific vice president of sales Kerry Tarrant said, “We are delighted to be working with Hitachi again. This event and campaign closely aligns with Hitachi's strategic priorities in the fields of innovation and infrastructure development, while also engaging the influential CNBC business audience on some of the big pan-regional challenges that the Asian economy faces.”

Hitachi Asia managing director Hirohiko Morisaki added, “Hitachi's Social Innovation Business focuses on improving quality of life for the global community by combining infrastructure solutions with advanced IT technologies. As such, we are excited to partner CNBC once again for this meaningful event and broadcast. While Hitachi is already working closely with key stakeholders from both public and private sectors regionally to resolve urbanization-related issues, this event will provide new perspectives on how Hitachi can better address critical issues through our expertise in areas such as transportation, energy and water solutions.”
