The summit aims to understand technology’s global impact on governments, businesses, and societies. Critical present-day challenges, such as security, climate change and “new normal” global growth and commodity prices, are among the issues on the agenda. E15 policy options will play a prominent role at the meeting.
We live in a fast and interconnected world, where breakthrough technologies, demographic shifts and political transformations have far-reaching societal and economic consequences. So leaders need to share their insights and innovations on how best to navigate the future.
