Addressing Global Challenges for a brighter future 

With the aim of expanding the dialogue pertaining to major geopolitical and macroeconomic trends, the forum has the vocation to study both the impact and the possible solutions. Indeed, today, more than ever, we live with a paradox: global challenges are more connected, but state responses remain fragmented.

Interestingly, the pace of political events around the world requires that industry professionals take the initiative to confront the consequences of the links between geopolitics and business performance. The two-day-long international business conference aims to provide relevant and well-thought-out approaches to the world’s most pressing social, political, and economic issues.

While globalization and technological progress have led to remarkable advances; yet, they have also generated increased inequality, especially within countries.  How to make sure that people, sectors and regions are not being left behind? The conference purpose is to debate and devise realistic approaches when it comes to the dark clouds looming over the world economy.

Amid discussions on understanding New Geopolitics with thematics such as geopolitical dynamics and risk factors, climate change, terrorism and populism, trade tensions, rise of new technologies or the general state of the global economy, there have been a number of talks, papers and discussions from prestigious key speakers in various industries during the past editions.
