COMMITTED TO GROWTH
The New York Forum was conceived out of a conviction that the business world is at a crucial crossroads. It is imperative to send a strong message of optimism about the future of the global economy, work to redefine corporate governance, create long-term value and reinvent business models by bringing together all stakeholders in the economy.
The theme of the 2011 Forum is “Committed to Growth”. The focus is on strengthening the connection between economic growth and job growth, the importance of cities as the key engines of dynamism and innovation, the challenges corporate leaders face in a time of volatility and uncertainty, and the distinct opportunities created by growth in emerging economies.
The specific action items that emerge from The New York Forum will be presented to the G-20 Summit in Cannes, France in November, 2011.
- The New York Forum® will bring together business leaders, sovereign fund managers, policymakers and Nobel prizewinning economists to craft innovative ideas addressing current challenges facing the global economy.
- CEOs, investors, and policy makers will participate in intensive taskforces led by The Boston Consulting Group to explore the tangible challenges and opportunities associated with specific trends in the current environment.
- The Forum aims to create an environment in which leaders from different sectors can collaborate with industry experts to begin the process of reinventing business and creating a new paradigm for growth.
