The 23rd World Knowledge Forum, the largest business forum in Asia hosted by South Korea’s Maekyung Media Group, will be held in Seoul in September under the title of “Supercompensation Restoring Global Prosperity & Freedom.”
The forum will arrange tracks and sessions led by high-profile speakers with the common goal of finding solutions to overcome global challenges and make a leap forward at a time when the global community stands at a critical turning point amid intensifying geopolitical tensions between democratic and authoritarian states – Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and ongoing U.S.-China conflict in a new Cold War.
The global economy is also in transition in search of new balance. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought supply chain setbacks and inflation shock, while the Russia-Ukraine war has exacerbated a global energy and food crisis. Businesses also face challenges in dealing with climate change in a high interest rate and inflation environment.
“Supercompensation” refers to the stage of going beyond recovery to a better state.
The forum will invite high-profile speakers including David Cameron, former prime minister of the United Kingdom, and Francois Hollande, former president of France, to share insights on the direction of reorganizing of international order. Esko Aho, former prime minister of Finland, and Carl Bildt, former prime minister of Sweden, will speak about Europe’s future. Paul Krugman, distinguished professor at City University of New York, Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, and Stephen Roach, senior fellow at Yale University, will talk about the future of global economy.
Tracks are “The New Cold War,” “New Wealth Equation,” “Dynamics of Transformation,” “Future Launchpad,” “Greenshift & C-Tech Race,” “Algebra of Freedom,” and “Rebuilding Trust & Living Inspired.”
The 23rd World Knowledge Forum will be held from Sept. 20 to 22 at Jangchung Arena and Shilla Hotel in central Seoul. Registration deadline is Sept. 8.
