JULY 20, 2023 – Bloomberg today announced the Bloomberg New Economy Forum’s return to Singapore, November 8-10, 2023, with a full delegation of global corporate and government leaders. This sixth annual Forum will mark Singapore’s fourth time as host, following the inaugural event in 2018 and subsequent events in 2021 and 2022.

The event marks a critical moment for global leaders from the public and private sectors to connect and share insights during a busy calendar of Asia-linked events, including the 2023 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Summit (APEC) in San Francisco.

Confirmed 2023 delegates thus far include Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister, Republic of Singapore; Michael R. Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies; Abdulrahman Al-Fageeh, Acting Chief Executive Officer, SABIC; Henry Fernandez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, MSCI Inc.; Jan Jenisch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Holcim; Kai-Fu Lee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Sinovation Ventures; Edu Lyra, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Gerando Falcões; Sanjay Mehrotra, President and Chief Executive Officer, Micron Technology; Dina Powell McCormick, Vice Chairman and President, Global Client Services at BDT and MSD Capital; Robert E. Moritz, Global Chairman, PricewaterhouseCoopers International Limited; Noel Quinn, Group Chief Executive, HSBC; and Lei Zhang, Chief Executive Officer, Envision Group, with more to be confirmed. Also attending as confirmed Advisory Board members are: Sara Menker, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Gro Intelligence; Nandan Nilekani, Chairman and Co-Founder, Infosys Limited; Josephine Wapakabulo, Founder and Managing Director, TIG Africa; and Lei Zhang, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Hillhouse Investment.

This year’s theme, “Embracing Instability,” highlights the challenges confronting the global economy and underscores the opportunity to better understand and address underlying issues such as persistent inflation, geopolitical tensions, the rise of artificial intelligence and the precarious state of the world’s climate.

The Forum caps off the most comprehensive year of Bloomberg New Economy events and programs yet, following the recent inaugural Bloomberg New Economy Gateway Africa in Morocco and Bloomberg New Economy Gateway Europe in Ireland. Later in Summer 2023, the third class of Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts will be announced and the Bloomberg New Economy Climate Technology Coalition will provide its recommendations for the clean hydrogen sector.
