 The complete agenda is now available to view here. Led by Reuters editors, the agenda has been carefully curated to address the most critical global issues of the day – bringing together more than 40,000 professionals from over 150 countries to explore five central pillars:


  • Policy for progress – exploring how policy can work towards progress for the whole of society.
  • Business of growth – discussing how opportunistic businesses are reshaping the way we live, work, travel and bank.
  • A sustainable future – examining the coordinated private and public-sector effort still required to ensure climate change is central to every company and country’s policy making.
  • Radical redesign – debating how the pandemic has accelerated new ways of living and working.
  • A fairer world – bridging income, racial and gender gaps in jobs, healthcare, education, media, culture, and information access

We’re excited to bring world leaders and pioneers together again in a forum where global professionals can gain access to exclusive insights, opportunities and innovative solutions to the challenges we face in the year ahead.”
