Numerous contributions of Asian statisticians are very well recognized in our profession around the globe. Universities in USA have been excellent training hubs for statisticians from around the world and in particular, from Asian countries. They train problem solvers and critical thinkers for academia, Business, Industry and Government (BIG). I have benefited tremendously from many of my mentors in our profession and I am grateful to many. In this talk, I will focus on: What are the strengths Asian Statisticians bring to our profession? What opportunities exist for Asian Statisticians in the era of BIG data, in all sectors? How universities and professional societies can help in building future leaders in statistics? What are the needs and challenges for Asian Statisticians? (My personal perspective) How Asian Statisticians can strive for excellence, enhance diversity and foster harmony in our profession?
