Asia is resilient and can bounce back in the face of challenges, says Credit Suisse regional CEO

The Asia Pacific CEO of Credit Suisse is bullish on Asia’s growth.

“I’m very excited about the region … the entrepreneurs are very resilient, the people are resilient — hardworking, and I think that’s the biggest asset that the region has to continue to grow,” Helman Sitohang told CNBC at the Credit Suisse Asian investment Conference in Hong Kong on Monday.

“One thing which is very exciting about the region is the ability to adapt, to really adjust to the changes etc., and then come back,” Sitohang said. “The region has resilience of the people, the resilience of the entrepreneurs, to adapt.”

He says the region’s adaptability is whyso many entrepreneurs have been flocking to its shores. According to Sitohang, Asia is home to the highest number of entrepreneurs.

Asked if there were opportunities for Asia in the ongoing trade conflict between the U.S. and China, Sitohang said: “In every shift of resources, there’s always somebody that will benefit.”

He said Southeast Asia would likely be a beneficiary.

“I don’t think it’s a loss for China either as well, because China obviously has other parts that they can contribute and also adapt, and the country has amazingly been able to continue to grow at a strong pace,” Sitohang added.

Ethiopian Airlines still 'believes in Boeing' despite 737 Max crash, CEO says

The chief executive of Ethiopian airlines has said his company “believes in Boeing,” despite a tragic crash just over two weeks ago.

A Boeing 737 Max 8 plane killed all 157 people on board on March 10 just minutes into its flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi.

Questions over the Boeing plane have arisen amid similarities with the crash of a Lion Air 737 Max plane in Indonesia last October that killed 189 people.

“Let me be clear: Ethiopian Airlines believes in Boeing. They have been a partner of ours for many years,” Tewolde Gebremariam wrote in a statement Monday.

The executive added that he did not want to yet speculate on the cause of the Ethiopian crash but said the investigation was well underway and he expected to discover the truth.

Gebremariam also defended his airline’s training procedure, noting that Ethiopian pilots who flew the 737 Max 8 were fully trained on a service bulletin issued by Boeing and the Emergency Airworthiness Directive issued by the USA Federal Aviation Authority (FAA).

CEO who hired for Microsoft, Amazon: 3 most in-demand skills for A.I.

The rise of artificial intelligence is rapidly changing the workplace. And while there’s less demand for basic cognitive, physical and manual skills, the job market is still absolutely electric.

But the growing competition for top talent has been choking HR departments — especially for those in tech. My managerial roles at Amazon and Microsoft have largely shaped the way we screen candidates at Outreach, the sales engagement platform I founded in 2014.

What’s important to note is that many companies — especially large ones like Microsoft, Amazon and Google — all have one thing in common: We utilize A.I., machine-learning and data science to enhance our products, so hiring people with the right skills to fill those gaps is a huge priority. The real struggle, however, is being able to successfully separate the wheat from the chaff.

According to a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute, the three most in-demand skills by 2030 will be:

Social and emotional skills Higher cognitive skills Technological skills

If you’re looking to fill a role at a large tech company, here are the types of interview questions employers ask to determine whether you have the right skills:

Restaurant Brands CEO: Burger King's $5 coffee subscription will help it win the breakfast wars

Subscriptions have become popular across industries — from New York Mets tickets to exercise bikes — as a lucrative way to build brand loyalty. For Burger King, its new $5 monthly coffee subscription is a way to get customers into their stores in the morning to check out their other breakfast offerings.

Restaurant Brands International CEO Jose Cil said Thursday that the subscription should get customers to notice its recently overhauled breakfast offerings.

“We thought the coffee subscription would be a good way to bring people in, raise some excitement at Burger King,” he said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”

The battle between fast food restaurants, from McDonald’s to Dunkin’, to get customers through their doors in the early morning has been ramping up over the last few years, but Burger King is the first to turn to subscriptions.

The burger chain also just introduced the Burger King Cafe brand, following the lead of rival McDonald’s McCafe.

Cil took the reins of Burger King’s parent company in January amid a series of management series. Prior to becoming chief executive, he had served as president of Burger King since 2014.

The company has also been investing in digital across all of its portfolio. Another company in Restaurant Brands’ portfolio, Canadian coffee chain Tim Horton’s, just launched a loyalty program Wednesday in an effort to sell 8 out of every 10 cups of coffee in Canada at its stores. It already sells 7 out of every 10 in the country.

CVS Health CEO on reducing costs: Billions in value opportunity is ‘in front of us’

The health care industry has reached $3.5 trillion and is “growing at an unsustainable rate,” said Merlo, who pointed out that an estimated quarter of health care spending is wasteful and reducible.

CVS Health CEO on reducing costs: Billions in value opportunity is 'in front of us'

CVS Health CEO Larry Merlo told CNBC Thursday that the health chain is unlocking growth opportunities despite the stock’s downward trend since officially merging with Aetna in November.

The company has made “tactical execution” changes to its long-term care business that has faced “intense financial pressure,” he said. The skilled nursing unit came from CVS’ 2015 acquisition of Omnicare.

“The real growth opportunity in that space is in the assisted and the independent living space,” Merlo said in an interview with “Mad Money’s” Jim Cramer. “We feel that we’ve got the business stabilized and it’ll grow from this point forward.”

Shares of CVS are down about 30 percent from its November high of about $82 that preceded the $69 billion closing of the Aetna deal. In defending the acquisition, Merlo said critics who thought CVS should have bought back stock instead are “limited in their thinking.” The retailer and managed health care can achieve more combined than as separate entities, he said.

“As we think about this new company, we’re gonna manage it at an enterprise level,” he said.

The health care industry has reached $3.5 trillion and is “growing at an unsustainable rate,” said Merlo, who pointed out that an estimated quarter of health care spending is wasteful and reducible. With lessons from the Caremark merger last decade in in the rearview mirror, CVS is focused on reducing medical costs, he added.

“Percentage points are going to matter here,” he said. “Being able to reduce those unnecessary costs, you know, the value created is going to start with a ‘b’ as in billion. That’s the opportunity that’s in front of us.”

CVS’ retail has found growth in both the front store and pharmacy, Merlo said. The pharmacy chain dropped tobacco products from its shelves in 2014, but is looking to add more cannabis-based oils in its stores as interest grows. Locations in eight states carry non-CVS branded CBD products and have helped to ease arthritic pain, Merlo said.

Cannabidiol is a natural compound found in cannabis.

“We’re gonna walk slowly, but we think that this is something that customers are going to be looking for and it’s, you know, part of the health offering,” he said.

Merlo also highlighted early results in new HealthHUBs concept stores being piloted in the Houston, Texas area. The revamped stores are tailored for clinical services including treating acute illnesses and managing chronic diseases. Dietitians and respiratory therapists are on staff, Merlo said.

Other services include wellness programs and in-store sessions geared towards the community, which allows them to learn what’s important to customers, he said. CVS wants to help people access care that’s convenient for them whether it’s in the community, at home or on a smartphone, he said.

“You think about the imperatives that this new company can create, the opportunity to make health care local, the opportunity to make it simple and the opportunity to improve health,” Merlo said. “The concept stores begin to execute against that imperative.”
