It was the middle of March in Hong Kong and art collectors, museum representatives and red-carpet regulars such as Hollywood star Susan Sarandon descended upon the city to attend the annual Asian edition of Art Basel, the region's largest contemporary art fair. http://s.nikkei.com/18X0U8S

The man who guided China toward becoming the world's second-largest economy was not the country's former top leader, Deng Xiaoping, but rather Singapore's first prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew. Or at least this is one way future historians might describe China's rise. http://s.nikkei.com/1COKFH2

Singapore is mourning the death of the man who built the city-state into a premier place for doing business. Lee Kuan Yew, who held the title of prime minister for three decades, died March 23. He was 91. Many questioned Lee's authoritarian style, yet he was also revered for his economic stewardship. Can Singapore continue to build on his legacy?

2014 was a vintage year for capital flows into Australian real estate from Asian developers and investors, with a record 8.7 billion Australian dollars ($6.63 billion) worth of transactions recorded in spite of concerns about the country's economic prospects. The flow of capital from these groups shows no signs of abating in 2015 as new classes of buyers emerge and Australia steps up its integration with the region. #Australia #invest

Lee was credited with developing the tropical backwater into a world-class economy, and he established himself as one of the most important opinion leaders in Asia, even after stepping down as prime minister in 1990. #singapore

Taiwan's Quanta Computer is assembling the Apple Watch, while touch module maker TPK Holding is supplying components for the U.S. tech giant's latest gadget. Up to 20 million of the smartwatches are expected to ship in 2015, but production constraints during the first six months of the year could drag that number much lower. #apple #watch

I first met Lee Kuan Yew the day Tony Blair won the 1997 election in Britain, putting an end to 18 years of Tory government. I asked Lee what he thought of the result. He replied that Blair was an intelligent man who should do what his own People's Action Party did in Singapore many years earlier. "We came to power on the back of left-wing slogans," he said, "but when we got there we seized the center ground and never looked back." http://s.nikkei.com/18X0L5A

Lee Kuan Yew's death marks the end of an era in Singapore. The city-state in recent times has sought to balance prosperity with political transition to usher in another wave of growth. http://s.nikkei.com/18X0NKw

Escalating conflict between government troops and ethnic insurgents in the Kokang region of northeastern Myanmar has spilled over to Chinese soil. On March 14, China claimed that airstrikes by Myanmar military jets had caused civilian casualties in Yunnan Province, which shares a border with Myanmar. The Myanmar government, however, denies that its jets were involved in the bombing. #myanmar
