Over 50 CEOs, chairmen and influential thinkers joined The Economist's Editor-in-Chief, and his senior editorial team, for discussions on the topics that are dominating the boardroom and world economy. In the spirit of The Economist, the meeting focused on a free and open exchange of ideas.

The debate was centred around

  • World economy: The search for growth
  • The political agenda: Food, oil and unrest
  • Buidling an environment where business can thrive

The Economist's Global Agenda Meeting is much more than a simple get-together of global leaders from many fields. Those invited to participate represent the cream of global business, politics and thought-leadership. Invitees range from heads of $1 billion-plus global corporations to prize-winning academics and senior policymakers.

The Global Agenda has two parts: a dinner, with a specially invited speaker, followed by a meeting the next day.
