The Future is Everywhere: Adapt and Achieve


The last year has presented no shortage of difficulties for the global community. Nations around the world are not only facing the aftershocks produced by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the global economy is also encountering unprecedented challenges. The way in which the world will resume order and economies seek new forms of collaboration is not yet clear, however the biggest economies are that will lead this journey is. With the UK finalizing its Brexit deal, in the near future we could be witnessing a brand-new partnership between China, the UK and the EU.

We are excited to welcome almost 40 influential politicians, business leaders and scholars from all over the world to share their insights on where the world is heading post Covid-19. Seven sub-panels will address the challenges and opportunities facing the global economy, investment, technology, young leadership, new media and content, luxury and fashion, and sustainable business economics.

This forum is free of charge and will be broadcast via zoom. There will be interpreters translating into both Chinese and English, as well as live broadcasts through the Nouvelles d' Europe’s UK channel.
