THE DEBATE FOR GREAT MINDS
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.
