Dr Sultan Al Jaber

Al Jaber and Alabbar to speak at Bloomberg New Economy Forum

DUBAI, October 14, 2020

Dr Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, UAE, Group CEO of Adnoc and Mohamed Alabbar, Founder of Emaar Properties will speak at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum 2020. 
The forum to take place virtually from November 16-19 and discuss how to redesign the global economy post Covid-19.  
The China Centre for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE), The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), and Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) have been named as co-hosts for the forum. 
More than 500 current and former heads of state, influential business executives, government officials, academics and experts from around the world will join them in a collaborative effort to help redesign key parts of the global economy after the ravages of Covid-19, emphasising sustainable and inclusive growth. The preliminary list of speakers for the 2020 Bloomberg New Economy Forum features prominent business executives, government leaders and experts from across all sectors and geographies.
An overarching goal of this effort is to bring together leaders from East and West to work toward “Our New Economy”— a shared future that reflects the shifting composition of economic forces in the world today. Now in its third year, the Bloomberg New Economy Forum is a unique convening platform for the public and private sectors to exchange ideas at a time when the transition of economic power from the industrialised world to emerging markets is creating extraordinary opportunities, as well as tensions and challenges.
“The Bloomberg New Economy Forum was founded on the belief that the world’s most pressing issues can only be solved by working together across all regions, all sectors and all industries. Our mission has been given added urgency this year as Covid-19 threatens to exacerbate East-West divisions,” said Justin B. Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Bloomberg Media. 
“These conversations cannot wait, which is why the Bloomberg New Economy Forum will convene virtually in November, with the support and participation of our esteemed co-hosts from around the world. It is also why we are opening up the forum via live stream for the first time ever, to make these conversations accessible to a widespread global audience at a critically important time.” 
Following the success of the 2019 forum in Beijing, co-hosted with CCIEE, the 2020 forum also welcomes IISS and MINDS to this year’s virtual event. These organisations will lend their unique perspectives and insight to drive a constructive dialogue on how best to emerge from the Covid-19 crisis, ease the global transition that is underway, and foster critical development drivers in the new economic era.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has brought massive new challenges and uncertainties to global economic and social development. At this critical historic moment, CCIEE as a think tank feels a deep responsibility to continue working closely with Bloomberg and other organisations to host the New Economy Forum virtually, bringing together influential global government, business and thought leaders to discuss the new issues and challenges facing humanity, and to contribute to global economic recovery and social innovations for future development,” said Zhang Xiaoqiang, Executive Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the China Centre for International Economic Exchanges.
“The IISS is a global institution keenly interested in providing facts and analysis on how geo-economic trends affect international security and stability,” said John Chipman, Director-General and Chief Executive of The International Institute for Strategic Studies. “Working closely with those in the private sector bringing their innovations to market and navigating the inevitable uncertainties is important to us. We are therefore hugely delighted to be part of the discussions at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum this year and to be joining others to advance thinking on the changing shape of international economic relations.”
“It’s a critical time for global business, government, and non-profit leaders to come together and build consensus on how best to lead the world through recovery and reconstruction post-Covid-19,” said Graça Machel, Executive Chair of the Mandela Institute for Development Studies. 
“African leaders, many of whom will join in this dialogue at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum, must play a central role in guiding this agenda and implementing policies that will ensure that interests of all citizens are included.”
Michael R. Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Three-Term Mayor of New York City, will open the 2020 forum, which features thought-provoking plenaries, presentations, breakouts and bilateral meetings to advance a practical agenda for recovery. 
Over the course of four days and spanning multiple time zones, the agenda will focus on five core topic areas: finance, trade, climate, health and cities. A daily “Global Voices” segment will elevate a diverse range of contributors from around the world, giving them a platform to speak directly to the NEF community about the challenges they are facing and what they need to recover in a post-Covid economy. 
The 2020 forum is presented in partnership with Adnoc, Dangote Industries Limited, ExxonMobil, FedEx, HSBC, Hyundai Motor Group, Mastercard, Tata Sons, and Vanke. McKinsey and Company is the exclusive knowledge partner.
This year, for the first time ever, the Bloomberg New Economy Forum will invite widespread participation with a number of live-streamed, interactive sessions made accessible to a global audience.-- Tradearabia News Service
