Global Overview: Charting a New Course

Global Overview: Charting a New Course

October 19 at 8:30 am PDT / 11:30 am EDT

This session will begin with remarks from Lawrence Wong, Minister for Finance, Singapore, followed by a panel discussion on Global Overview: Charting a New Course. In the face of unprecedented challenges across the economy, public health, and society, global leaders are now charting a new course, with cooperation and collaboration catalyzing post-pandemic recovery and growth. While global policy consensus continues in a state of flux—surrounding trade, climate policy, and, yes, COVID-19—living standards continue to improve as science and technology leap forward, and economies continue their slow but steady recovery. This session will discuss the many challenges facing policy makers and corporate executives today from market stability and global supply chains, to humanitarian crises and geopolitical tensions. Join us for a critical conversation on global security, economic opportunity, and social prosperity.
