Bloomberg New Economy Forum to Convene Global Leaders In-Person in Singapore November 16-19
Michael R. Bloomberg to host fourth annual forum focused on advancing world’s greatest economic opportunities amidst Covid-19 recovery, from East to West and across the developing world
First-ever “Bloomberg New Economy Catalyst” virtual event welcomes a new wave of world-shifting visionaries on June 30
India, 2021 – Bloomberg Media today announced that the Bloomberg New Economy Forum will convene on November 16-19, 2021 in Singapore. As the global economy emerges from lockdown, the fourth annual forum will bring together the world’s most influential business executives, heads of state, innovators, and academics. Leaders from East to West, public and private sectors, developed and developing nations will mobilize behind the effort to build a sustainable global economy that creates jobs, reduces inequality and improves public health.
“The time since the last New Economy Forum has dramatically underlined why the event, and the themes that drive it, are so important. The pandemic has shown how interconnected we are and why cooperation is critical,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Three-Term Mayor of New York City. “New vaccines show the power of technology and public-private partnerships to address humanity’s challenges. And the disproportionate impacts of the virus, and uneven global access to vaccines, have shown how far we have to go to build an equitable future. The New Economy Forum is a chance for leaders to talk with one another and think big on these and other key issues – including the challenges and opportunities around climate change. We’re looking forward to returning to Singapore, one of the world’s most innovative cities and home of the inaugural forum.”
The Bloomberg New Economy Forum returns with the deep support of host country Singapore, at a time when the shifting balance of power between East and West presents challenges as well as tremendous opportunity. The intimate gathering will be limited to approximately 400 global leaders in a commitment to helping ensure the delegates’ safety by maintaining the protocol set forth in Singapore, and innovating new ways of safely convening in person.
“I am pleased that Singapore has been chosen to host the 2021 Bloomberg New Economy Forum, where business leaders will convene to discuss pertinent global issues. This is the second time that Singapore will be hosting the forum, following our successful hosting of the inaugural Forum in 2018. Health and safety remains Singapore’s top priority, and we will work closely with the Bloomberg team to create a safe and conducive environment to welcome all delegates here in November,” said Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong
