About Asia Focus

  • In response to the great need for foresight about Asia, IFTF has launched the Asia Focus Program. Asia Focus research topics are large-scale, under-explored areas from which unexpected futures will emerge. It is part of IFTF's flagship program, the Ten-Year Forecast Program, which provides a broad scan of the environment and is a leading source of foresight for a vangard of business, government, and nonprofit organizations.

I am desperately seeking for my husband named Armando Jose Rodado – Amaris, a Colombian and a Math teacher.
Last time we saw each other physically in Shenzhen Airport on mid June 2009 as he had to fly to New Zealand to study in Massey University, Palmerston North while I myself had to fly to my home country, to study as well in Indonesia.Our contact was only by the e-mails, the last one was three months ago. There is no address nor phone number to contact him anymore. He had left New Zealand last December 2010 and nobody knows where he is later residing.Some people told me that he has visited Cebu, Philippines, several times during 2010 and later stayed in Nanjing, Jiangsu to teach Math in China but no more information. Anyone who knows about him in Philippines, China or somewhere else, please let me know I am his legitimate/ formal wife. I will be very much thankful for any help or information.

Here is the ads and the picture of my husband, Mr. Armando Rodado:

Thank you for the info. There are so many fronts that we as individuals are losing ground on as we continue to digitize and globalize. You and your organization are very important.
